40 

Syracuse 0-0   40

The Orangemen lost Eric Dungy at quarterback but they have one of the sneakiest defenisve lines in the country that will surprise a lot of teams.

39

Colorado 0-0   39

QB Steven Montez to WR Laviska Shenault Jr. is going to be one of the most lethal combos at the NCAA level. The Buffaloes need to develop a consistent running game to take some pressing off the aerial attack i the wide open PAC 12.

38

Arizona 0-0   38

Important year for coach Kevin Sumlin as the Wildcats now have a full year under their offensive innovative head coach.

37

Boise State 0-0   37

The Broncos will reload and OLB/DE Curtis Weaver will announce himself to the nation and become a household name.

36

Maryland 0-0   36

Maryland has scored a few big wins over the last few seasons and have been close to getting into the upper tier of the Big Ten, this is the year success looks like it will spill over.

35

West Virginia 0-0   35

The Mountaineers lost their quarterback and top receivers to the NFL but they still have a stable running attack and enough speed and talent on defense to keep them competitive.

34

South Carolina 0-0   34

Time that people outside the SEC realize what a quality quarterback Jake Bentley. This is a team poised to pull off a few upsets within the conference this season.

33

USC   0-0   33

Still a lot of work to be done at USC before they can once again be considered an elite program.  

32

Appalachian State 0-0   32

If the coaching transition from Scott Satterfield to Eliah Drinkwitz goes well then we are looking at another potential 10-win season for the Mountaineers.

Virginia 0-0   31

Bryce Hall and Charles Snowden will lead what may be one of the most menacing defenses in not just the ACC but the nation.

30 Iowa 0-0  

30

Michigan and Wisconsin are road games but aside from that this is a very favorable schedule for the Hawkeyes.

29

Washington State 0-0   29

The Cougars got a great season out of gardner Minshew after he transferred fro East carolina. Washington State will hope they find the same success with Gabe Gubrud coming over from Eastern Washington.

Miami 0-0   28

Manny Diaz takes his turn at the helm of a talented Hurricanes team that needs to have a coach with staying power.

27

Virginia Tech 0-0   27

Virginia Tech looks poised to bounce back on defense, what the team has been largely known for over the years.

Minnesota is known as a run-first squad. Tyler Johnson leads a very deep receiver corps and it may change the identity of the offensive attack.

Baylor is getting close to turning the corner and challenging for the Big 12 title once again.

24

Northwestern 0-0   24

Hunter Johnson is a quarterback that is going to garner a lot of attention this season.

22

Penn State 0-0   22

There was a lot of turnover for the Nittany Lions but defenisve end Yetur Gross-Matos looks like a potential Heisman candidate on the defensive side of the ball.

21

Notre Dame 0-0   21

Will the Fighting Irish begin the year overachieving like they did a season ago?

20

Stanford 0-0   20

KJ Costello could challenge Oregon Duck quarterback Justin Herbert for tops in the Pac-12.

19

UCF 0-0   19

The schedule is harder than the last two years but double digit wins is still an attainable goal.

18

Mississippi State 0-0   18

The Bulldogs have become a fixture near the top of the SEC.

17

Wisconsin 0-0   17

Jonathan Taylor begins his run for the Heisman.

16

TCU 0-0   15

TCU comes into the season boasting their highest ranked signing class in 20 years.

12

Utah 0-0   12

the Utes could be the ultimate sleeper team with a healthy Zack Moss toting the football.

11

Texas A&M 0-0   11

The offense is in good shape even with Trayveon Williams and Jace Sternberger leaving for the NFL. The right side of the offensive line just has to hold up.

Jacob Eason will bring the kind of grit at QB that Washington lacked with Jake Browning under center.

9

LSU 0-0   9

7
