Dec. 3 FBS top 25


Here's our stab at a Football Bowl Subdivision top 25.


1. Alabama (13-0) — Well, now we know what this team is really made of.

2. Clemson (13-0) — Doing everything right.

3. Notre Dame (12-0) — Will be an underdog against Clemson, but has a shot.

4. Oklahoma (12-1) — Trip to Morgantown this weekend should be a terrific take.

5. Georgia (11-2) — Can't get caught looking ahead to 'Bama.

6. Ohio State (12-1) — Buckeyes pulled it together at the right time.

7. Michigan (10-2) — Still not sure what happened against Ohio State.

8. Central Florida (12-0) — Truly horrific injury to McKenzie Milton doesn't sink team's hopes.

9. Florida (9-3) — Heck of a first season in Gainesville for Dan Mullen.

10. LSU (9-3) — Injuries, players sitting out for NFL have this defense a little depleted.

11. Washington (10-3) — Chris Petersen remains one of the game's best coaches.

12. West Virginia (8-3) — Will be sad to see Will Grier go.

13. Penn State (9-3) — Bowl with Kentucky might be a little underrated.

14. Washington State (10-2) — Apple Cup aside, a terrific season for the Cougars.

15. Texas (9-4) — Tough to beat a team like Oklahoma twice.

16. Syracuse (9-3) — It only took three years for Dino Babers to get the Orange here.

17. Kentucky (9-3) — Louisville no match for the Wildcats.

18. Mississippi State (8-4) — What a beastly defensive line this is.

19. Texas A&M (8-4) — No truth to the rumor that the Aggies and LSU are still playing.

20. Fresno State (11-2) — No small feat to take down Boise State.

21. Utah (9-4) — Another solid year for the Utes.

22. Boise State (10-3) — Taking on BC in the Big D.

23. Northwestern (8-5) — One of those programs that has had success recruiting Massachusetts.

24. Missouri (8-4) — Drew Lock will hope to put on a show for the NFL scouts in the bowl.

25. Iowa State (8-4) — Let's see how long the Cyclones can keep Matt Campbell.
