Preseason Top 25
1. Ohio State Roster, schedule set up perfectly for veteran Buckeyes to make a title run
2. Alabama Once again, the biggest challenges will come in conference title game, playoffs
3. Georgia Is there room in the playoffs for two SEC schools? Bulldogs run the table, it could happen
4. Florida State Opening-week game against Alabama could foreshadow a playoff rematch
5. Clemson Probably too many losses for title defense, but Tigers are just reloading now
6. Wisconsin Someone has to step up as Option B in the Big Ten; Badgers could be a darkhorse
7. Washington Glamour pick because of QB Browning, but Huskies lost a lot to the NFL
8. USC Now that the Trojans have their QB, will that be enough to make up for rebuilding offense?
9. UCLA Bruins could be the surprise team of the PAC-12 if defense can jell quickly
10. Auburn If Tigers’ QB situation is fixed, the sky is the limit in a crucial year for this staff
11. Penn State Probably not ready for prime time yet, but getting there quickly under Franklin
12. Oklahoma St. Ability to put up a gaudy record thanks to a friendly schedule, could make the playoffs
13. Oklahoma Untimely retirement of Bob Stoops probably kills the Sooners’ title momentum
14. Michigan Wolverines aren’t catching anyone by surprise this year, but fans adamant a title is imminent
15. Louisville High-flying Cardinals could sneak up this list with an upset or two
16. Notre Dame Time to put up or shut up for Brian Kelly; QB issues abound but schedule is manageable
17. Stanford Probably a step-back year for the Cardinal, but they’ll be a tough out for all opponents
18. Texas A&M Aggies need just a touch of defensive improvement to be decent; more than that, they may contend
19. LSU Not where the Tiger faithful are hoping to land, but Tigers have worst QB situation in the SEC
20. Ole Miss The NCAA is in town, yes. But this team still has talent aplenty and is tough on both LOS
21. Oregon Ducks are a bit of yesterday’s news, but they can’t continue to be outright bad. Right … right?
22. Tennessee Expectations are high in Knoxville but too many questions abound on offense to challenge
23. Washington St. Cougars are well-coached even though usually outmanned
24. West Virginia Looking for a pure darkhorse? Take the Mountaineers, who are expecting offensive resurgence
25. Florida Inexperience has the Gators under the radar; talent is still there to finish higher than this
