College Football 2008 Preseason Rankings

It's that time again, and people have been asking for my rankings for the college football preseason of 2008.

It is still way too early for these shenanigans, but I figured why not, eh?

I’ll release a valid poll that will be updated every Sunday after Week 3 of the regular season. But, without further ado: I can't wait for the season and these are the teams that I think will come out strong and finish that way.

1. Georgia

2. USC

3. Ohio State

4. Missouri

5. Oklahoma

6. West Virginia

7. Florida

8. Kansas

9. Auburn.

10. Texas Tech

11. Penn State

12. Texas

13. Wisconsin

14. Alabama

15. Oregon

16. BYU

17. Illinois

18. Virginia Tech

19. LSU

20. Clemson

21. Tennessee

22. Michigan

23. Wake Forest

24. Boston College

25. Arizona State


We should have a wonderful season ahead of us. The conferences are fairly even, with the exception of the ACC, which is showing little reason to hope for something special in the 2008 season.

No-way-too-early preseason prediction would be complete without taking a stab at the different conference champions…
