After much deliberation, I have come up with my top 32. I am not doing a top 25, unlike most websites, because 25 is a weird number if you think about the logistics of college football. There are 128 FBS (or if you want to be PC, Division 1-A) teams. Half of 128 is 64, and half of 64 is 32. So, I have ranked the top 25 percent of the FBS.
Without further ado,
I am only ranking Alabama as number 1 because of the dominant win over USC. They did not look very good against Western Kentucky, but their defense is amazing through two games.
2. Florida State
Their QB, Deondre Francois is carrying this team so far.
Even though they have only played Oklahoma, it’s more than Michigan has.
4. Ohio State
Dominant wins against Bowling Green and Tulsa.
Jim Harbaugh has done a good job with the Wolverines.
Christian McCaffrey is a Heisman candidate. (Surprise!)
Have you seen Jalen Hurd?
8. Michigan State
Great D and Tyler O’Connor has proven to be an adequate replacement for Connor Cook.
Lamar Jackson has accounted for 13 TDs through two games and is easily leading the Heisman race.
10. Ole Miss
And rounding out the top 10, Chad Kelly!
This team is sleepwalking right now.
Myles Gaskin and Jake Browning are living up to the hype.
Baker Mayfield is not what we expected. Yet.
Shane Buechele is in a tight race with Deondre Francois for the title of best freshman QB and Malik Jefferson is a monster.
15. Notre Dame
The Irish quarterback controversy could ruin a potentially promising season.
Nothing spectacular, but a solid, typical Kirk Ferentz team.
For all the hype about Jacob Eason, Kirby Smart and Nick Chubb, I don’t think that Mark Richt would have barely scraped by Nicholls State.
18. Texas A&M
This defensive line could carry the Aggies to the SEC Championship.
Bart Houston has proven himself as Wisconsin’s starting QB.
Brad Kaaya. Period.
Royce Freeman is still one of the best backs in the country.
Leonard Fournette cannot carry this team alone.
Austin Allen has learned from his years behind his brother.
Either SMU is better than we thought, or Baylor is worse than we thought. I am of the former opinion.
25. Appalachian State
Taylor Lamb and Marcus Cox are stars in Boone.
They need help on defense, but Kenny Hill has firmly entrenched himself as the Horned Frog’s starter.
Sean White is an effective stopgap at QB.
28. Oklahoma State
The Cowboys are better than most of the Big 12.
The Gators haven’t really played anyone.
30. San Diego State
The nation’s second longest winning streak and Donnel Pumphrey will get you in the top 30.
31. Georgia Tech
Justin Thomas and the Jackets are 2-0.
32. Western Michigan
Corey Davis is the best player you’ve never heard of.
The top 32 is now finished. Please comment below if you have a problem with the rankings.
