Way-Too-Early College Football Top 25 For 2019-2020 Season

25. Virginia Tech

Though the Hokies rallied to earn a bowl bid, they still finished 6-7 and lost to Old Dominion at home last season. Losing quarterback Josh Jackson to injury played a big part in the team’s struggles, but he’ll be back along with backup Ryan Willis. If Virginia Tech can improve a defense that allowed 31.0 points per game, those winning ways should return.

24. Nebraska

Scott Frost’s return to Nebraska got off to an extremely rough start with six-straight losses out of the gate. However, the Cornhuskers won four of their final six and raised hope for a winning season in 2019. There are still questions on defense, but the offense appears to be in capable hands with Adrian Martinez in control.

23. Auburn

Gus Malzahn will be calling the plays in 2019, which is good considering he might be on the hot seat. The Tigers need to settle on a quarterback sooner rather than later, as they face a tough road slate — Texas A&M, Florida, LSU — next season. Their defense, though, should be among the best in the country with defensive tackle Derrick Brown back.
