7 B1G teams crack the preseason Top 25 for Athlon Sports
We’re less than 100 days until the 2019 college football season kicks off. Yes, there are still three months standing between us and the first game, getting into the double-digit mark is a big deal.
Now that the 100-day mile marker has been reached, Athlon Sports has released its preseason rankings for the 2019 campaign. The B1G was well represented in the poll, with seven teams positioned in the top 25 and two squads in the top five spots.
Michigan and Ohio State lead the way for the conference, sitting in the No. 4 and No. 5 spots. There’s then a logjam of B1G teams from No. 14 through No. 19. Here’s how Athlon Sports has the B1G teams ranked heading into the season:
- No. 4 — Michigan
- No. 5 — Ohio State
- No. 14 — Penn State
- No. 16 — Michigan State
- No. 17 — Nebraska
- No. 18 — Iowa
- No. 19 — Wisconsin
That’s sure to come with plenty of debate. Several other media outlets will probably have different variations, as well.
We’ll see how comparable Athlon Sports’ rankings are with other preseason polls in the coming weeks.
