The recently great schools are once again at the top of the latest College Football Rankings. That means Alabama Football, Clemson Football, LSU Football, Ohio State Football and more lead the way in the Top 25. But there are other programs who could make a CFB championship run, like Texas Football, Georgia Football, Oregon Football, Florida Football, Oklahoma Football and Michigan Football.

The SEC has four of our top 6 programs, but that really shouldn’t be a surprise or controversial given recent history. Penn State, Oregon and Oklahoma should be good again, despite some key losses. The same is true of Notre Dame. Texas, USC and Michigan are big names in the College Football world, but are they Top 10 teams?

  5. Mohammed Almaamari on June 23, 2020 at 11:29 pm

    With all respect to your predictions ; I totally disagree with USC Trojans at #16 not even a dream under Clay Helton.
    This team can not function homogeneously regardless to the changes they make in their coaching staff under CH.
    We do not expect much from the Trojans.

  6. Nicholas Im on June 23, 2020 at 11:30 pm

    FSU is a team to watch

  7. JonMwan G on June 23, 2020 at 11:32 pm

  11. The Black Dog on June 23, 2020 at 11:36 pm

    Anytime you rank ACC teams and Big 10 teams better than SEC teams, you lose. When are you dumb moonbats ever going to learn.

  25. Liam Duquette on June 23, 2020 at 11:54 pm

    Louisville should be replaced with UCF

  26. Mike Chappell on June 23, 2020 at 11:54 pm

  30. Jxxy_ on June 23, 2020 at 11:58 pm

    Kellen monds a JOKE

  31. Micah Heard on June 24, 2020 at 12:01 am

    Texas will be overhyped ass always. Michigan will be a top 10 team by then end of regular season.

  32. King Bovee on June 24, 2020 at 12:01 am

    I think I speak for any UGA fan when i say that losing Jake Fromm and replacing him with a mobile QB in Jamie Newman should help our offense. We lose Swift too but next year will be an air raid offense for sure anyways.

  33. TREY K. - TIGERZZz on June 24, 2020 at 12:03 am

    Etienne didn’t go pro 🤦‍♂️ 🤦‍♂️ 🤦‍♂️

  34. Wuffer Maurer on June 24, 2020 at 12:04 am

    Clemson #1 Alabama #2 Ohio #3

  35. Zach Horiba on June 24, 2020 at 12:06 am

    Is overrated

  36. sarge1231 on June 24, 2020 at 12:07 am

    It is a bit ridiculous when teams give reasons for a loss, so as a lifelong Clemson fan, I will not do so now. Clemson did not play badly, they did not lose because of bad calls either. It is true that losing Skalski was a tough blow, but that is not why they lost. They lost because of LSU and an unstoppable quarterback named Joe Burrow, who was having a magical year. Clemson was a great team this year, but Joe Burrow and that offense was just on another level, rarely ever seen in College football. That being said, LSU loses Joe Burrow, and I doubt that LSU will be the same team without him. That kind of talent is hard, if not impossible to replace. Looking only at who the ranked teams lost, and who they have coming in this year, Clemson should be the team to beat. In fact, Clemson should be great for the next 3 years at least. LSU was a surprise this year, and Ohio State was actually better than Clemson, and should have won the game against Clemson. As a Clemson fan, I was actually a little surprised that Clemson was a playoff team this past season, because the talent they lost on the defensive line was good reason for them to not be as dominant. This next year however Clemson may field the most talented team they ever have had, especially if the 6…yes 6, so far…5 star freshmen have immediate impact. In any case, I am 61, and just 10 years ago, 5* recruits just would not really consider a Clemson offer. I am just thrilled that Clemson is on a level now to be a desired offer for 5* recruits Nationwide. I never expected to live to see that. Clemson can now recruit players once reserved for Bama, UGA, LSU, Michigan, Ohio State and a few others. They have the facilities, exposure, coaching and now the pedigree to compete with any team in recruiting every single year. 5* recruits want to go where they have a reasonable chance to make the playoffs, and become a high draft pick in the NFL. Clearly, there is not any team that is more likely to be one of the 4 playoff teams than Clemson.

  37. Jesse M on June 24, 2020 at 12:10 am

    1) OHIO St 2) Clemson 3) LSU 4) BAMA ………….5)FLORIDA (who cares)……. Oregon is loaded again and a top 10 team. Then you have GEORGIA, then 8) AUBURN 9) WISCONSIN 10) NOTRE DAME…………Ou boomer skooter is OUT (thank GOD) The Ou QUEER DEFENSE and a freshman Qb who could not stay healthy in a PUFF Arizona HS league are Cotton Bowl bound!!!

  38. Urban_Nation on June 24, 2020 at 12:11 am

    16:55 Well it’s a new season, so why should a team be judged by what they did last year not what they can do this hear? I still agree with Clemson being #1, but I think it’s stupid if you guys really used that to measure a team’s ability for this upcoming season.

  39. T-Swagg Gaming on June 24, 2020 at 12:13 am

    Sleeper: ASU. They should figure to be a huge contender in the PAC-12 South. Herm Edwards is doing wonders in Tempe.
    Ranked too low: Oregon. With the addition of Joe Moorhead as OC, the offense should figure to be explosive. We all know about the defense.
    Overrated: USC. Not sold on Helton’s ability as an effective HC, nor am I sold on Kedon Slovis. If they’re a top 25 team, they need to do better than losing 56-24 to the #6 team (end of ‘19 season).

  40. Tyler Stevens on June 24, 2020 at 12:14 am

    Top 4 1.Clemson 2.Ohio State 3.Alabama 4.Texas

  41. JJ D on June 24, 2020 at 12:15 am

  47. Eric Harrison on June 24, 2020 at 12:17 am

    2020 sleeper team? UCF. 4 losses in 3 years. Theyve beaten memphis countless times. Beat auburn, beat baylor years ago, beat louisville last time they played, crushed Stanford. Rankings need to wake up. The CPI has them at a 50% chance of going to CFP if they win out their season.

  48. JJ D on June 24, 2020 at 12:18 am

    Dude Bama is not in the top four I put them at 11

  49. Derrick James on June 24, 2020 at 12:20 am

    Don’t sleep on Cal Bears!! Chase Garbers healthy a full year will do wonders for us with a very favorable schedule

  50. Cody Wetjen on June 24, 2020 at 12:23 am
