Preseason Top 25

1. Clemson

There’s no longer a question about the program; now it’s just a matter of replacing pieces.

2. Alabama

The offense will be dynamic; the defense is rebuilding. We’re still not sure what this team is.

3. Georgia

Bulldogs lost more talent than many want to admit. Can QB Fromm find enough support?

4. Ohio State

Most dynamic team in the Big Ten, but the offense is changing identities and defense needs help.

5. Oklahoma

It’s really all about how Bama transfer Jalen Hurts comes through at QB.

6. LSU

Not flashy, but the best lines in the SEC and solid in the back end of the defense. A hard out.

7. Texas

Impatient Longhorn fans feel it’s their year. Probably one or two away yet, but much improved.

8. Oregon

If the defense can survive some transition, this will be the surprise team from the PAC-12.

9. Missouri

Veteran team that should be able to make better use of Kelly Bryant’s QB skills than Clemson did.

10. Michigan

Hard to believe we’re saying this, but Harbaugh has something to prove as a coach.

11. Notre Dame

Gaudy regular-season performances that tend to melt against better postseason competition.

12. Utah

A PAC-12 led by Oregon and Utah may have old heads spinning. Both are playoff contenders.

13. Wisconsin

Never particularly impressive on paper, but then the games start and opponents get pounded.

14. UCF

Not really this good but the record is going to allow for more hype.

15. Texas A&M

Boom/bust team. Can be as good as Clemson, or as bad as a mediocre mid-major.

16. Florida

The college football equivalent of a crazy uncle. But there are pockets of immense talent here.

17. Washington

Typically solid team that can’t seem to be dynamic when it needs to be.

18. Nebraska

Getting better under Frost, but there’s a ceiling over the program yet to be popped.

19. Iowa State

It all depends on how legit QB Brock Purdy is as a long-term play. Solid team around him.

20. Tennessee

This is probably the Vols’ limit for a couple of years. Lines are suspect at best.

21. Iowa

Good building blocks that need some newcomers to step up and fill in the gaps.

22. Penn State

Too much rebuilding, especially on offense. And Franklin may have hit his zenith already.

23. Washington St.

Leach keeps finding ways to be an effective spoiler, but the talent level just can’t cut it.

24. Miami

Honestly has a lot more talent than this ranking, which points to the dysfunction inherent at the U.

25. Auburn

If they hit the QB jackpot, Tigers could go shooting up the list. Solid defensive team.
