College Football Top 25

Spring practice is over. The NFL Draft has come and gone. National Signing Day seems like it was eons ago. This is the time when the longest offseason in major sports is its most grueling. This is also when optimism flourishes, when no team has a loss and every team has a chance.

Athlon is here to help fill the days between now and that first college football game of the year. After all, it’s preseason magazine season.

All editions of the 2016 Athlon Sports college football preview are available in our store, hosted on Amazon. Our 2016 annuals include the National preview of all 128 teams, regional editions for the SEC and Big Ten. Athlon is also the only magazine in 2016 with editions previewing the ACC, Big 12 and Pac-12.

To celebrate the arrival of this year’s magazines, we’re releasing our top 25 for 2016*.

Stay tuned to for previews of each team, conference predictions and rankings of all teams from No. 1 to No. 128.

All of Athlon’s 2016 previews are available now online and will be available on newsstands May 24.
