    1. Ohio St.gif Ohio St - The Buckeyes should be 2-0 when they face #4 Oklahoma in a big out of conference game in week 4. QB Scott McClain (94 Ovr) and HB Shelton Brewer (95 ovr) lead the crew from Columbus this year.

    2. Penn St.gif Penn St - Senior QB Tommy Mullins and HB Paul McCoy (both 95 ovr) lead the Nittany Lions this season. Their biggest game is week 12 when they play at top ranked Ohio State.

    3. Texas A&M.gif Texas A&M -The Aggies are the highest ranked team in the SEC West coming into the season, but junior QB Orlando Meeks (80 ovr) and HB Patrick Pino (87 ovr) will have to run the gauntlet through an SEC schedule which includes trips to Auburn and Tuscaloosa, as well as an intra-conference trip to Norman, Oklahoma.

    4. Oklahoma - Speaking of the Sooners, they're stacked. QB Julius Newby (99ovr) and HB Nick Alexander (98 ovr) could compete against each other for the Heisman. They're arguably the best team, but there's no doubt the Sooners play the toughest schedule. Opening up against #16 West Virginia, they also play at #1 Ohio State, vs. #24 Texas, vs #3 T A&M, and vs #9 TCU.

    5. Houston - Aside from the two user teams they play, the Cougars' schedule is very soft. Key games include hosting #23 Iowa in week 7, at Decay's UConn team in week 9, and at Slopdawg's #13 Cincinnati. If they're still undefeated, Houston could make it to the National Title Game.

    6. Auburn -The Tigers are led by a host of great linebackers as well as QB Arthur Campbell (97 ovr). Can they survive the SEC West is the question.

    7. Washington.gif Washington -Senior HB Dwight Poole (85 ovr) and DT Bryant Davis lead the top ranked user team Washington Huskies. Coach Hokie Effect's schedule includes three user games. Key games this year are a week 6 trip to Utah and a week 8 trip to SlopDawg's Cincinnati.

    8. Va Tech -The highest ranked ACC team, the Hokies play no team ranked in the preseason top 25 until the last game of the year at #14 Virginia.

    9. TCU -Welcome to the Big XII, TCU. You have to play at Texas and at Oklahoma in consecutive weeks, then host a good West Virgina team.

    10. Miss St -The third SEC West team in the Top Ten, The Bulldogs are led by a great defense, two good wide receivers and QB Ian Peterson (84 ovr)

    11. Utah -The Utes hope to compete with Washington for a trip to the Rose Bowl or better. QB David McCall (87 ovr) could take them far but a young backfield could hamper Utah.

    12. Alabama - The Tide aree always stacked and this year is no different. HB Markeith Newton (96 ovr) is a Heisman contender, but the SEC West is amazing.

    13. Cincy.gif Cincinnati -Coach SlopDawg's Bearcats will look to win the Big East with HB Kyle Bobo (88 ovr) carrying the load. An inexperienced defense and intra-conference games against Hawai'i and Washington could be their downfall.

    14. Virginia -The stars could line up for Virgina as their key games vs Va Tech and Clemson are at home. HB Ryan Nichols (90 ovr) leads the Wahoos.

    15. Clemson - The Tigers are led by NFL prospect Center Anthony Pollard (96 ovr) and can take advantage of a mediocre ACC.

    16. West Viginia -The Mountaineers are in the Big XII now and are led by two great Halfbacks Paris Kendrick (91 ovr) and Adam Dukes (90 ovr).

    17. USC -The Trojans have the talent. QB Kingsley Adams (96 ovr) is just one of a bunch of pro prospects playing in the Coliseum.

    18. Nebraska - QB Rondell White (92 ovr) and a great two-headed halfback tandem lead the Huskers Key games include @ Tennessee, vs #1 Ohio St, @ Michigan, @ #2 Penn St

    19. Michigan St - Sparty does avoid #1 Ohio State and gets #2 Penn State at home, but they add a game vs #12 Alabama. QB Gary Cooper (89 ovr) leads the way, but both lines are weaknesses.

    20. Hawaii.gif Hawai'i - Two consecutive undefeated national championship seasons still have apparently not gained the respect of college football voters. But that shouldn't bother coach Neal Henn. His Rainbow Warrior is always a tough beat. In fact, Hawai'i hasn't been beaten since New Mexico State upset them 2 1/2 years ago in OT. Hawai'i must come out of the gate strong this year, as they face Coach Slopdawg's #13 Cincinnati Bearcats and LSU, both on the road, before they can come home and hang a new banner in Honolulu.

    21. Michigan - QB Tony Frye (98 ovr) has Heisman hopes and HB David Schmidt (95 ovr) carries the ball for this dangerous Big Ten team. The Wolverines would be a great longhorse pick to win it all, and the schedule has them hosting #1 Ohio State at the end of the year and has them avoiding #2 Penn State altogether.

    22. South Carolina - The only SEC East team to crack the Top 25, the Gamecocks have a good offense but their secondary is suspect.

    23. Iowa - WR's TJ Edwards and Greg Birch (93, 91 ovr) are great receivers, but Iowa four QB's are all freshmen. HB Ernest Moore (88 ovr) better have a big year for the Hawkeyes to survive a strong Big Ten.

    24. Texas -Talented Texas is stacked, but a tough schedule heats up with a trip to Wisconsin in week 4.

    25. Troy - Three user teams are on CPU-controlled Troy's schedule which is otherwise pillow-soft. HB Aaron Royal (88 ovr) will carry the team and QB Kevin McCarthy (78 ovr) will try to "manage the game."
