BYU’s not ranked, but after a 7-6 season that’s a good call. I like that Texas is ranked. Week one they’ll beat Rice for sure, and then be ranked still when BYU plays them.

UCF almost made it on the list, glad to see them get recognized.

GO SOONERS WELL DESERVED. CAN!T WAIT TO SEE WHAT COACH STOOPS AND HIS
STAFF WILL HAVE IN STORE FOR US THIS YEAR.
