college-football-top-25Is anyone else as excited as me to get the football season started? These Top 25 teams are going to be exciting to watch and I can’t wait to see who comes out on top.

1. Ohio State

Be ready to see some Big Ten domination with Urban Meyer looking to maintain an undefeated record. With strong talent coming in to rebuild the defense, this team is certainly going to be exciting to watch. Don’t be surprised to see OSU match up against an SEC opponent for the championship. Will we see The Ohio State end with another perfect season?

2. Alabama

Back-to-back… to back? Alabama once again is going to be bringing one of the most talented teams in college football to the field. McCarron is returning as quarterback, but they have several new faces on their offensive line ready to prove themselves. Their first 2 games will be a big test- Virginia Tech in Atlanta before heading to College Station to take on Texas A&M. If they can take both of these early season games, it could be smooth sailing from there.

3. Oregon

With former head coach Chip Kelly heading to the NFL to coach the Eagles, the Oregon Ducks will be coached by former OC Mark Helfrich. The recruiting violations Oregon committed are still pending with the NCAA, though we don’t think this year’s team will take the fall. I anticipate they will still be running their hurry-up offense with Marcus Manota and De’Anthony Thomas returning. Their depth and continued talent leads us to believe they have what it takes to lead the Pac 12.

4. Louisville

The Cardinals have Heisman Trophy candidate Teddy Bridgewater coming back, a Sugar Bowl title over Florida and a basketball national championship- all the recipe for a highly anticipated and successful season. Louisville has a fairly simple non conference schedule before potentially dominating the Big East.

5. Stanford

The Stanford Cardinal football team is also a top 5 favorite with some young receivers ready to show the nation what they’ve got. This is another Pac 12 power house as long as David Shaw is running the show.
