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:

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

Oregon and Cal are the top challengers for USC’s throne this year; read on to see if we think they have enough to get it done.
