1. Georgia Bulldogs need a quarterback, and not much else.
2. If FSU can keep distractions around Winston to a minimum, a repeat may be in the cards.
3. Alabama Potential SEC Championship Game with Georgia could eliminate a top-4 team.
4. Meyer would love a shot at Saban in a playoff – or so he thinks.
5. South Carolina Just on the outside looking in, and would have to pull for hated Georgia to score a playoff slot.
6. Oklahoma Sugar Bowl provided a glimpse of how good this team could be when it’s focused.
7. Oregon Ducks will go as far as QB Marcus Mariota can take them.
8. LSU Half the top eight are SEC teams. What did you expect?
9. UCLA Trendy pick to crash the playoff party needs to get by Ducks, Stanford first.
10. Baylor Unbelievable that the Bears have become perennial winners, but it’s happened.
11. Michigan State Old-school Spartans crush the Big Ten’s mediocre middle.
12. Auburn Can’t bet on luck to line up again like it did in 2013; defense needs work.
13. Stanford Rebuilding year of sorts in Palo Alto, with Cardinal likely to play the spoiler role this season.
14. Ole Miss Rebels have a chance to make a statement behind stout, veteran defense.
15. Wisconsin Badgers need a quarterback. Top candidate for potential Bust Of The Year.
16. USC Depth concerns linger,but Trojans have the talent to compete.
17. Notre Dame Fighting Irish still lack the athleticism of the top 12-14 teams on this list.
18. Clemson Tigers likely to experience what stock market calls “a correction.”
19. Penn State Get ready for the James Franklin era to kickoff in Happy Valley.
20. Texas A&M Porous defense, quarterback questions mask a solid offensive line, special teams and receivers.
21. Washington Like UCLA, another media darling from the West Coast. But Huskies have teeth.
22. Texas Charlie Strong will make Longhorns tougher, but it won’t be a quick process.
23. Kansas State There’s no logical reason the Wildcats should be ranked this high. And then Bill Snyder walks out of the tunnel.
24. Louisville Bob Petrino steps into the perfect situation; Cardinals are darkhorse top-10 pick.
25. Nebraska Current regime needs a better finish than this in order to hang onto their jobs.
