2013 College Football Preseason Consensus Rankings

Jerome Miron-US PRESSWIRE

Did you have a chance to read every single preseason College Football magazine? Me too. If you add all these numbers together, the top 25 rankings and conference predictions are quite interesting.

Not that preseason polls matter (they don't), but it is interesting to see how the consensus thinks... #18 is about right for TCU from my perspective, but that projected Big 12 finish could be really wrong. Props to Stassen on putting this together:
