Ranking all 130 college football teams is no easy task, but with the first Saturday of action on Aug. 26 approaching quickly, it’s never too early to see how every FBS program stacks up for 2017.

Mountain West Football 2017 Predictions

San Diego State has claimed back-to-back Mountain West titles, and coach Rocky Long’s team begins 2017 in great shape to repeat.

Colorado State went 7-6 in head coach Mike Bobo’s second season, but the Rams could be poised to contend in the Mountain West Mountain Division this fall. The offense returns plenty of firepower while the defense brings back eight starters and a linebacker that missed all of 2016 because of a health issue. There are concerns along the defensive line and in the secondary, but Colorado State should be able to score enough points to earn a trip to a fifth straight bowl game, at minimum.

Predictions for any FBS conference and all 130 college football teams are an inexact science. Some teams are just a bigger mystery than others or a hard program to get a read on for the upcoming year. Coaching changes, transfers, players returning from injury, scheme tweaks or just overall depth chart concerns make any preseason prediction difficult for a number of teams.
