Mariota on cover of SI College Football Playoff issue

EUGENE, Ore. - Marcus Mariota made the cover of Sports Illustrated for a fourth time in his college career.

This time, it's one of four alternate covers highlighting the teams in the 2014 College Football Playoff.

The 32-page report tells the tales of both Mariota, the 2014 Heisman winner; and Jameis Winston, the 2013 winner who will line up as quarterback for Florida State against the Oregon Ducks in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day.

SI also questioned opposing coaches about their opponents weaknesses - and strengths.
