Final Grades For Every College Football Team, Conference: How Did Everyone Do In 2020?

Sun Belt Season Grades: West

Arkansas State 2020 Season Grade: C-

2020 Record: 4-7

2019 Final GradeB

The program is past the point of not at least being a factor in the Sun Belt title chase every year, and losing five in a row before closing out with a win over a winless ULM isn’t okay. Beating Kansas State and Georgia State was cool, but the defense didn’t come through this season.

Louisiana 2020 Season Grade: A

2020 Record: 10-1
CFN 2020 Preseason Ranking
: 81

2019 Final GradeA-

The Ragin’ Cajuns handed Iowa State its worst loss of the season, the only defeat came in a. 30-27 fight with a fantastic Coastal Carolina team, they finished as – technically – co-Sun Belt champs, and they won a bowl game in a ten-win campaign in the COVID season. That’s pretty good.

South Alabama 2020 Season Grade: C+

2020 Record: 4-7
CFN 2020 Preseason Ranking: 123
CFN 2020 Final Rankings: 108
2019 Final GradeD+

The four-win campaign actually wasn’t that bad considering the coaching change, but after a 3-2 start going 1-5 the rest of the way was a disappointment. The offense managed 17 points or fewer in all five of those losses, but it went against the Sun Belt stars and Troy.

Texas State 2020 Season Grade: C

2020 Record: 2-10
CFN 2020 Preseason Ranking: 121
CFN 2020 Final Rankings: 111
2019 Final GradeC-

Yeah, it was only a two-win season, but the offense started to work and the team became far more competitive and far more interesting. It pushed Boston College on the road, hung around with most of the Sun Belt stars, and gave SMU problems.

ULM 2020 Season Grade: D-

2020 Record: 0-10
CFN 2020 Preseason Ranking
: 124
CFN 2020 Final Rankings
: 124
2019 Final GradeC+

It’s an unfair grade considering the preseason ranking and the final one matched, but 0-10 is still 0-10. It was supposed to be a rebuilding run, but still … winless? The program is better than that, but the O was a clunker and the D a disaster.
