Early Top 25 for 2013
With the 2012 season over, here's a look at college football’s top 25 teams for 2013. Nick Saban (pictured) and Alabama will be losing a few key players, but there’s plenty of talent returning to Tuscaloosa for the Crimson Tide to claim their third consecutive national title.
While Alabama is a heavy favorite to repeat, determining the No. 2 team is a much tougher task. Ohio State and Oregon will be top-five teams, but Stanford, Clemson, Louisville and Notre Dame will be the top challengers to end the SEC’s run of seven consecutive national championships. — ATHLON SPORTS
