CFP semifinals and Rose Bowl preview with Mark Podolski – The Nail in the Coffin, Episode 138

For the fourth straight year, News-Herald sports editor Mark Podolski joins the show to talk bowl games.

Is another Alabama-Clemson championship game inevitable? Does Washington stand a chance in Urban Meyer’s last game on the Buckeyes’ sideline? And is it surprising that Dwayne Haskins is actually playing on New Year’s Day?
