College football teams ready for a comeback in the 2022 season

Everybody loves a comeback story, especially in college football. Once-great and proud schools that fall on hard times are always looking for a way back in.

And now, with the advent of the transfer portal, the game is looking at a far-greater rate of turnover on rosters, allowing schools to more quickly regain their footing and ease back into their conference races.

That could be the case for a few programs on the downswing that used this offseason to correct some problems and put themselves in position to make a run.

As ever, the presumptive College Football Playoff race is as narrow as ever, and the usual suspects will be in contention for most of the season.

But as last year showed, there's more than enough room for a first time team to qualify for the semifinal and from there make a run at the national championship.
