More Pre-Season CFB Rankings - Archive

College football fans love to compare teams, seasons, eras, coaches, players, uniforms, schedules and yes, pre-season media rankings. Here’s some Sporting News work that came out in early May, showing composite rankings and direct comparisons between the bigger names in the college football prediction business.

Now that we are on the verge of running into a new spate of hotly argued pre-season CFB predictions/rankings, it will be interesting to see if USC has shifted in placement to any significant degree per the other media predictors as June begins. Athlon has already moved USC up meaninglessly from #23 to #21.

Two things seem absolutely certain so far: The Trojans are firmly planted behind Washington, Notre Dame, and Stanford by literally everyone, and UCLA is nowhere to be found and no one’s pick to immediately turn the tables under Chip Kelly.
