The 2019 college football season may seem like light years away, but what could the AP Top 25 look like when it all returns in late August?
Another college football season has come and passed and that means it’s time to look ahead to the 2019 campaign following yet another rematch in the national title game between Alabama and Clemson.
It’s only right that we consider those two heavyweights the early favorites for the 2019 national title, but who will be following them in the preseason AP Top 25?
Some teams stood out during bowl season such as the Florida Gators who stomped Michigan, 41-15. No one gave the Gators much of a shot to score on the stingy Michigan defense, but Dan Mullen showed just how much difference a year can make. Also in the SEC, LSU looked to be a legitimate national title contender, beating undefeated UCF, while Georgia struggled against Texas.
Speaking of Texas, are the Longhorns back? It sure looked that way in their victory over the Bulldogs in the Sugar Bowl, but Tom Herman needs a solid follow-up season. Sam Ehlinger sure things the Longhorns are back.
Ohio State, too, looked great in a bowl win over Washington, but the Buckeyes will have to move forward without Urban Meyer who has stepped down. Will anyone be able to step up and beat the Ryan Day-led Buckeyes in 2019?
The 2019 season is shaping up to be an exciting one. What could the AP Top 25 look like when the 2019 season begins?
