Athlon Sports last week released its college football top 25 for the 2016 season. Now, it’s time to look at the teams that just missed the cut.
These are teams that we could see on the fringes of the top 25 this season or perhaps even contending for a division in a Power 5 conference. On this week’s podcast, co-hosts Braden Gall and David Fox go conference-by-conference looking at teams ranked 26-50.
This includes teams like Arkansas, Miami, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, Washington State, Nebraska, Utah, Wisconsin, Texas, Auburn, Penn State and many, many more.
What are these teams’ strengths and weaknesses and what would need to happen for these teams to crack the top 25?
Reminder: All of Athlon’s rankings and team previews are available in this year’s preseason magazines, which can be purchase at www.athlonsports.com/store or on newsstands everywhere.
