Sully's Big Blog! Commentary on College Football, Weekly Games, And Strange Statistics!

Athlon’s Preseason Top 25 for the 2021!

Athlon’s magazine has hit the news stands and here is their preseason Top 25. Unlike Sully’s College Football Page (SCFP), they rank the FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) as a whole. They do not break the Power 5 (P5) & Group 5 into different ranking categories! So you will find Cincinnati (8), Louisiana (23), & Coastal Carolina (24) listed below.

Cincy is from the American Athletic Conference (AAC), while Louisiana & Coastal Carolina are both out of the Sun Belt Conference (SBC), On SCFP, Cincinnati is the #1 ranked team in our G5 Poll, Louisiana holds down the #5 spot, & Coastal Carolina comes in at #8!

You can compare & contrast Athlon’s preseason poll with Sully’s rankings provided below; You will note, we agree on the top teams, but not in the same order. Take a moment to see other similarities and distinctions and let me what you think!

We will provide Lindy’s Sports Top 25 tomorrow!
