After winning the national championship earlier this month, Ohio State leads SI.com's 2015 Way-Too-Early College Football Top 25 Power Rankings. What other top teams made the list?
Ranking teams in January immediately following the national championship feels a lot like giving a review to an upcoming sequel the second you walk out of the theater after you saw the first installment. You’re going to be swayed by the performances you just watched, and it’s impossible not to tie the two together.
Not to mention, you have no idea whether the entire cast will be back, which director will be linked to the project and if the script is even any good. It’s a pointless and often fruitless endeavor. But so is ranking teams in the first place.
Our insatiable need for football drives us. It is the only thing that keeps us going. It is nothing and everything.
And so, here is a much-too-early top 25 heading into the 2015 season. Don’t laugh -- it’ll be fall camp before you know it.
Next Five: Mississippi State, Utah, Tennessee, Texas, Kansas State
