Rankings for all 120 Division I football teams
1. Florida — Yes, the Blessed Tebow returns, but so does the entire defense from last year’s champs.
2. Southern Cal — Even with losses on defense, no one has more talent at his disposal than Pete Carroll.
3. Texas — Longhorns’ real McCoy could snare his own Heisman if Texas can run the table.
4. Oklahoma — Defending Heisman winner Bradford is great, but tight end Gresham is even better.
5. Ohio State — Thanks to a Pryor engagement, Buckeyes might lurk in the national title chase.
6. Alabama — If Crimson Tide ever unearth a truly potent passer, look out.
7. LSU — Expect a bounce-back year in Baton Rouge, where talent is not a question.
8. Penn State — Royster, efficient QB Clark will keep Nittany Lions in the running for the Roses.
9. Virginia Tech — Hokies’ national title hopes will die early with an erratic offense.
10. Georgia — Bulldogs are far less heralded but nearly as talented as a season ago.
11. Boise State — Just a typical year in Potato Land, where winning 11 games sounds about right.
12. California — Golden Bears might have nation’s Best tailback, but they need more to beat Southern Cal.
13. Mississippi — Despite excessive hype, Rebels have the schedule and QB (Snead) to come through.
14. Oregon State — Beavers will follow their usual plan: mediocre early, dominant late.
15. Georgia Tech — So who still thinks the triple option won’t work in the ACC?
