Fox spokesman Joel Klatt makes his choice between Alabama and Ohio State

With the conference championship weekend quickly approaching, debates over which teams deserve to round out the college football playoff picture are sure to intensify in the coming days.

The conversation centered on Ohio State (11-1) and Alabama (10-2), two teams that have seemingly torn the CFB world back and forth over which side has the strongest arguments to get last to reach four, if any, the favorites, namely USC, fall out of contention. The Buckeyes and Crimson Tide ranked fifth and sixth, respectively, in the latest AP Top 25 poll, behind No. 1 Georgia (12-0), No. 2 Michigan (12-0), No. 3 TCU (12-0 ) and No. 4 USC (11–1).

On Monday, Fox Sports college football analyst Joel Klatt decided to complement the OSU bama debate with a resounding stance that will surely garner its fair share of supporters and detractors across the country. Needless to say, Klatt didn’t mince his words when he revealed he’s a firm supporter of Ryan Day’s Buckeyes, despite the program suffering its first loss of the year with a 45-23 blowout against the Wolverines on Saturday.
