The Dan Wetzel College Football Podcast returns for its fourth season and welcomes longtime regular Clay Travis, proprietor of OutKickTheCoverage.com and insider for FoxSports1.

[Also: Listen to all of Dan Wetzel's podcasts here]

Topics include:

How the College Football Playoff will impact the season … and seasons to come.

Thoughts on the selection committee and the disappointment that no one with a math background or ties to a Las Vegas sports book was included.

The exciting opening week, including high-profile games such as Texas A&M-South Carolina, Boise State-Ole Miss, Florida State-Oklahoma State and LSU-Wisconsin.

Whether Wisconsin is a dark horse to reach the four-team playoff, and the importance for the Big Ten to start strong in non-conference play to bolster its reputation and not get left out of the postseason.

Whether the committee will properly view Michigan State’s trip to Oregon next week (especially if the Spartans suffer a close loss).

The state of the SEC and whether Alabama is being slightly overrated because of its name.

The likelihood of Florida State repeating.

Whether anyone nationally realizes that the Pac-12 has emerged as a clear top two conference in college football.

Also, four games are broken down: Ohio State [-14] vs. Navy, Alabama [-27] vs. West Virginia, Clemson [plus-7.5] at Georgia and Wisconsin [plus-4.5] vs. LSU.

The podcast has grown virtually every week or every season, so jump on board and give it a listen here or on iTunes.

As always, it’s free.
