Brad’s 2015 College Football Preview- Comprehensive Ranking

Every summer since 2007 I have created an intricate set of college football predictions for the upcoming season.  This year is no exception, as I will be using my blog over the next few days to publish my predictions.  The one major modification to my predictions for 2015 is that I have gone through every team’s schedule and actually predicted the result of every game in FBS.  Here are my rankings of teams 1-128.  The column to the left of each team is my ranking of each squad, and the column to the right of each team is the experts ranking (average of Lindy’s, Sporting News, Athlon, ESPN FPI, DeSimone, and Phil Steele) for that program.  You will soon see that the teams in which I have the biggest disparities with the experts will be featured in my surprise/disappointment lists in the upcoming days.
