One Thing To Know: Don’t overreact to last year. The ultimate rebuilding job now means the Tigers are full of veterans who should be a whole lot better. It certainly won’t be close to 2019 again, but there’s too much talent to be 2020.

9 Oregon

2020 CFN Final Ranking: 28
2020 CFN Preseason Ranking: 9
2019 CFN Final Ranking: 7
2018 CFN Final Ranking: 31
One Thing To Know: Oregon was a disappointment and still won the Pac-12 Championship. The talent on this year’s defense is special, but the offense needs QB Anthony Brown to grow into a star with Tyler Shough transferring.

2020 CFN Final Ranking: 8
2020 CFN Preseason Ranking: 4
2019 CFN Final Ranking: 4
2018 CFN Final Ranking: 4
One Thing To Know: Once again, all the talent is there to be the best team in college football, and once again, the expectations will rightly be at a national title level. QB JT Daniels should help with the offensive consistency.
2021 SEC Spring Rankings

4 Ohio State

2020 CFN Final Ranking: 2
2020 CFN Preseason Ranking: 1
2019 CFN Final Ranking: 2
2018 CFN Final Ranking: 3
One Thing To Know: Getting back WR Chris Olave and DE Tyreke Smith helps in what for anyone else would be a rebuilding season. It’s Next Man Up at Ohio State, and the offensive line will be among the best in the country, but it’ll still take a full offseason to get back up to national championship speed.
2021 Big Ten Spring Rankings

3 Oklahoma

2020 CFN Final Ranking: 6
2020 CFN Preseason Ranking: 6
2019 CFN Final Ranking: 8
2018 CFN Final Ranking: 5
One Thing To Know: This might just be Lincoln Riley’s best team yet. The passing game should be unstoppable with QB Spencer Rattler getting to work with a receiving corps that could be the best in college football. Oh, by the way, the defense is going to be special again, too.
2021 Big 12 Spring Rankings

2 Alabama

2020 CFN Final Ranking: 1
2020 CFN Preseason Ranking: 3
2019 CFN Final Ranking: 15
2018 CFN Final Ranking: 2
One Thing To Know: It’s Alabama so losing a boatload of NFL stars doesn’t matter … but it does. It’s not going to be an 2019-to-2020 LSU problem because the defense is going to be a killer, but you don’t get better after losing DeVonta Smith, Najee Harris and Mac Jones.
2021 SEC Spring Rankings

1 Clemson

2020 CFN Final Ranking: 3
2020 CFN Preseason Ranking: 2
2019 CFN Final Ranking: 3
