AP TOP 25 FOOTBALL
The AP top 25 has been released for this years college football preseason and we will be comparing both polls below, once again at College Football Today. Our CFB Today 25 below has new previews for 2019 or coverage we attained at spring practices and/or the 2018 season.
CFB TOP 25 2019
The CFB top 25 for 2019 will have several major polls this year, which can make things quite confusing for the average college football fan on where their team is actually ranked. The USA Today coaches poll can be found by clicking HERE, as we begin to break down the differences in each CFB top 25 for the 2019 college football season. I believe many mistakes will be made and new teams will arrive early in the 2019 CFB season, that I am willing to predict should have great seasons in the world of College Football Today.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL TOP 25
The college football top 25 will change week by week and I am not surprised that the AP put Nebraska in the top 25, as predicted. Maybe we did have them too high, but the statement has been made and the Huskers are once again a top 25 team for the first time since 2014. Our BIG Ten predictions have Michigan and Penn State over Ohio State, as it could be a down year for the Buckeyes with the departure of one of the winning-est coaches of All-Time in Urban Meyer. They also lost Dwayne Haskins and many other players that played a significant role in their Rose Bowl big. I was actually one of Ohio States advocates to make the College Football Playoff, but you just couldn't deny a undefeated Notre Dame football team.
CFB RANKINGS 2019
Our CFB rankings in 2019 feature Tennessee and South Carolina at numbers 18 & 19 respectively, as they play some extremely tough schedules. I believe that the committees are looking at these games as losses to Florida, Georgia and Alabama for the Vols, but they did beat Auburn last year and a very good Kentucky team. They did not finish the season well with brutal losses to Missouri and Vanderbilt, but I think Jeremy Pruitt will be successful in his second season as the head coach of the Tennessee Volunteers. The gamecocks have the same type of daunting schedule and will face Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Texas A&M and Clemson! All of those teams are ranked highly in the top 25, so if they can pull off a few upsets. We will see the gamecocks break into the top 25 somewhere in the 2019 college football season.
AP TOP 25 2019
The AP top 25 in 2019 did not feature five teams on our College Football Today top 25 and I believe Pittsburgh, as well as Florida State are destined for very good seasons in 2019. We have to remember that Pitt lost to Notre Dame by merely 5 points last season and beat a very talented Syracuse team. They did not have a great start to the season, but with Mark Whipple coming on board from UMASS, as they new offensive coordinator, they should be able to put more points on the board. They had a great three game stretch where they were able to defeat Duke, Virginia and Virginia Tech, as well as secure a spot in the ACC championship game. They lost their bowl game by one point to a very talented Stanford team and have "unfinished business" heading into the 2019 college football season.
CFB TOP 25 2019
Our CFB top 25 in 2019 features Florida State and honestly, I believe Coach Willie Taggart will have the Seminoles firing on all cylinders this season. They get a tough Boise State team at home to open up the season and it will be fun to see where this very talented football is at in week one. In my opinion, the Noles could easily be an 5-0 team heading into Clemson on October 12th looking for a big upset to propel them back into national prominence. They have had very solid recruiting classes and I am a big believer in Akeem Dent in the defensive backfield. If James Blackmon can bounce back from a bad season and solidify himself as the starting QB early this season, Florida State could see a reemergence. Florida State did not take the Devlin Hodges experience well, but neither is defenses in the National Football League. They survived the scare that Samford football put on them early in the season, but it wasn't enough to overcome the rest of the ACC in 2018. We will have more all week on the college football top 25, as well as top football recruit news at Scout Trout Elite!
