Austin Statesman Top 25 countdown - #1Clemson (Houston #11)

Find it interesting to see what other areas of the country project. Statesman started a Top 25 countdown this week and I’ll try to update it here;

Here’s their preview; http://www.mystatesman.com/news/sports/college-football/previewing-the-american-statemans-top-25-football-/nrsRq/

I love their quote, “Almost nobody views Houston as a mirage. Tom Herman’s second edition of the Cougars might not lag far behind last year’s 13-1 team.”

Coming out of Austin that’s a big deal. Now let’s see where we land in this beauty contest. Last year we didn’t make their pre-season Top 25. Bet we make it this year.

#17 Washington

#16 Georgia

#15 Michigan State

#14 USC

#13 TCU

Clues from AAS say no 12 is Ole Miss

TCU has interesting conference schedule with regards to Oklahoma schools. Both were home games last year, away games this year. I would have thought those two would be split, TCU would have to go there every year for one of the games.

Bingo

#12 Ole Miss

Houston will be next based off the hint

Yes!
No. 12: Coming Wednesday. Want a hint? This school is the highest-ranked school from Texas in our Top 25 — and it’s not in the Big 12.

#11 Houston

#10 Notre Dame

#9 Tennessee

#8 Stanford

#7 Ohio State

#5 Michigan

#4 Oklahoma

Based off the hint, 3 will be Florida State which means Alabama/Clemson are the last 2.
