Rankings for all 120 Division I football teams
31. Miami — If maturing Hurricanes survive opening gauntlet, the ACC would be wise to be wary.
32. Notre Dame — Schedule looks conducive to a nine-win season, but Irish are far from elite.
33. Rutgers — Laughable nonconference schedule ensures Scarlet Knights won’t receive benefit of doubt.
34. Pittsburgh — Losses of McCoy and McKillop, questions at QB will set back Panthers.
35. South Carolina — Ol’ Ball Coach not any closer to bringing an SEC title to Columbia.
36. East Carolina — Defending C-USA champ has a chance at another crown — and a few more upsets.
37. Illinois — The ultimate talent vs. teaching saga will be played out this fall with the Zooker.
38. North Carolina — Tar Heels could be better, but luck played a huge role in 8-5 season in 2008.
39. Arizona State — Football mercenary Erickson should help Sun Devils bounce back from shaky year.
40. Northwestern — No Ohio State + No Michigan + Penn State at home = Stealthy Big Ten title pick.

43. Houston — Keenum just the latest system quarterback on a good team with gaudy numbers.
44. South Florida — Fading Bulls would be national title contenders if season ended in mid-October.
45. Wisconsin — Another mediocre season might hint at stagnation in Madison.
