College Football Rankings – Preseason

Hasn’t this summer gone by quick? School is about to begin, so that means one thing: football is back. The best time of the year is right around the corner. This year on MackMillBlog, I will be posting my weekly college football rankings. To start my rankings off, I created a preseason top 25 list.
