ESPN The Magazine's Top 25
The Mag's writers and editors rank college football's best and brightest
When The Mag's college football editors and writers put our heads together to produce our Top 25, there was, well, headbutting. Turns out, this whole college football polling thing sparks a lot of debate. (Who knew?!?) So you'll see two numbers in our poll: Each team's final rank and, in parentheses, its range of rankings on our ballots. Of course, the one team we didn't disagree on was Alabama. The Tide's rankings range was 1-1, making them our consensus top dog.
|1||Alabama Crimson Tide||1-1|
|2||Ohio State Buckeyes||2-6|
|3||Boise State Broncos||2-7|
|7||TCU Horned Frogs||5-12|
|8||Miami (FL) Hurricanes||5-11|
|11||Virginia Tech Hokies||7-16|
|15||North Carolina Tar Heels||12-20|
|16||Florida State Seminoles||9-UR|
|18||Penn State Nittany Lions||14-UR|
|22||Notre Dame Fighting Irish||18-UR|
|24||West Virginia Mountaineers||20-UR|
