So, outside of Louisville and Oklahoma, we don’t play anyone in the Top 50?

129+ Lamar
126 Tulane
122 SMU
111 Texas State
90 UCF
76 Tulsa
71 UConn
67 Navy
62 Memphis
51 Cincinnati

SMU and UCF will be better than their preseason ranking. Navy might be as well depending on the skill set of the next qb. Reynolds rarely missed a down last year, so who knows what that qb can do.

Tago Smith played a couple series in the notre dame game and looked pretty good. Navy will win some games this year.

#43 Mississippi State

#42 Arizona

#41 Air Force

#40 Temple

Temple is a very underrated team to me. They have a lot of returning starters and a nice schedule as they get USF and Cincinnati at home and miss Houston and Navy. The Penn State game at Happy Valley will be a good barometer for this team to see how strong they can be.

#39 Texas A&M

The Aggies have serious star power, but Texas A&M has won just 11 SEC games the past three seasons and plays a tough schedule.

#38 Washington

#37 Auburn

#36 Virginia Tech

#35 Nebraska

#34 Utah

#33 Boise State

#32 Arkansas

#31 Western Kentucky

#30 Washington State

#29 Pittsburgh

#28 TCU

#27 Penn State
