The Athlon Sports 2021 National College Football Annual and SEC Football preview are both available for purchase online and on newsstands around the country. No source will have you better prepared for the upcoming season.
At 288 pages, this year's national magazine provides in-depth team-by-team previews of all 130 FBS schools, conference predictions, bowl projections, All-America teams, position-by-position unit rankings, 15 things to watch this season, a Q&A with North Carolina quarterback Sam Howell, a recruiting rundown provided by 247Sports, and more. There are 23 different covers to choose from as teams from across the country are represented on the front.
The SEC edition is a 224-page deep dive into the toughest conference in college football, home of the defending champion Alabama Crimson Tide. Besides going in-depth on all 14 SEC teams with team previews, recruiting analysis, features, and more, this year's SEC magazine also includes additional coverage of the national picture. From our Athlon Awards that honor the nation's best positional units to our Extra Points section that covers everything from quarterback battles to new head coach/coordinator hires to Heisman contenders, as well as our FCS preview, this year's SEC magazine has a little something for any college football fan. And every SEC team gets their own cover because it just means more!
Both annuals feature an array of features on the most pressing topics for the upcoming season. In the national magazine, we take a look at how the transfer portal affects team-building and how college football forges ahead after COVID-19 upended the 2020 season. Among the many stories in the SEC magazine, we take a look at each of the new head coaches and give a report card on Texas A&M and Missouri after a decade in the conference.
