It's only June, but it's time for the 1st BRR College Football Preseason Top 10.
Want teams 11-25 or more on the top 10? Look for the complete Top 25 in August's Big Red Report Magazine.
1.) Oklahoma –Senior wide receiver Ryan Broyles passed on the NFL to return to Norman. The Sooners have eight returning starters on both sides of the ball.
2.) Alabama - Losing a Heisman running back, a starting quarterback, and a 1st round wide receiver is never easy, but Nick Saban is always about defense.
3.) LSU - An improved offense should make things even better for the Tigers after an 11-2 record in 2010. With 15 returning starters, LSU is a title contender.
4.) Oregon –Their high power offense should be good again, but the Ducks only have 11 returning starters on both sides of the ball.
5.) Boise State – The Broncos are quickly becoming "America's Team." A move to the MWC should only solidify their status as a top five team in the nation.
6.) Oklahoma State – Offensive guru Dana Holgorsen is gone and the schedule is tougher, but offensive stars Justin Blackmon and Brandon Weeden return.
7.) Nebraska – Taylor Martinez is a year older and should be a year smarter. Prince Amukamara is a big loss, but the Huskers have three potential All-Americans on defense.
8.) Stanford – Jim Harbaugh bolted for the NFL, but quarterback Andrew Luck and running back Stepfan Taylor are back. A BCS game is not out of the question.
9.) Florida State – The Noles are on the verge of being National Champion good, but breaking in quarterback E.J. Manuel early will hurt.
10.) Texas A&M – The Aggies' recruiting classes are getting better and better under former NFL coach Mike Sherman.
