2009 College Football Top 5 Non-BCS Teams


Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

Another entry in GameRosters.com’s series of college football “top 5’s”. These teams may not be on the radar of most college football fans, but they should be. All of them hail from non-BCS conferences (3 from the Mountain West) and receive little television exposure. That doesn’t mean these teams aren’t worth checking out. You want offense? Check out Houston and Boise State. Defense? TCU will smother offenses all year. Rivalries? Attend the Holy War between Utah and BYU and then we’ll talk.

NCAA 10 Top 25 – Overrated and Underrated Teams


Monday, June 29th, 2009

Now that we’ve had some time to look at EA’s top 25 rankings for NCAA 10 (you can view them here), we’ve come up with a list of teams that we think are either overrated, underrated, or got snubbed entirely. Let’s dive right in:

OVERRATED – #17 BYU
– The Cougars are the top ranked team from the Mountain West at #17. While we think BYU is top-25 worthy, we think 17 is a bit too high, especially considering they are ahead of both TCU and Utah. BYU opens the season against Oklahoma, and also get Florida State early on. Two losses in their first three games will likely drop the Cougars from the top 25, and they will need to spend the rest of the season climbing back up the rankings. QB Max Hall is the best QB in the conference, but we think BYU loses at least 3 games and finishes the season in the 20-25 range at best. Our Pick: 20-25
