Tim Brando is back with his preseason top 10 ahead of the 2022 college football season. A pair of Big Ten programs, Ohio State and Michigan, are among the 16 teams mentioned. As Brando’s followers should expect, the FOX Sports commentator has different takes than some of his peers in the college football media.

Ohio State is Brando’s No. 1 team heading into Week 1. The Buckeyes are followed by Alabama, a popular pick for the preseason top spot, at No. 2. Defending national champion Georgia is No. 3.

Baylor, Utah and Oklahoma fill out spots 4-6. NC State, Notre Dame, Michigan and Houston round out Timmy B’s Top 10. Brando has Clemson, Ole Miss, USC, Oklahoma State, Kentucky and LSU as the teams just outside of the top 10.

On social media, Brando is hearing a lot about ranking NC State and Houston in the top 10. The Wolfpack and Cougars might not be getting a lot of media love elsewhere, but Brando is quick to remind everyone that he was promoting Cincinnati long before others jumped on the bandwagon for the playoff-bound Bearcats. Perhaps, big things are in store for NC State and Houston this fall.
