Podcast: Dennis Dodd on Mariota vs. Manziel, Art Briles and FSU-Clemson
Senior Columnist Dennis Dodd joins Chip Patterson for a special midseason edition of The Doddcast.
The Doddcast is back with a special midseason report; previewing some of the accolades coming in Tuesday's CBSSports.com Midseason Awards. Dennis and I discuss the narrowing Heisman Trophy race between Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota and Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel (we call them "1 and 1A"), his pick for Coach of the Year at this point in the season, and what we can expect from undefeated Missouri without starting quarterback James Franklin.
Dennis also likes Clemson in the ACC's Top 5 showdown between the Tigers and No. 5 Florida State , citing Howard's Rock and the Death Valley crowd as the intangible to tip the scale between two BCS title contenders.
