The 2019 season is in the books. It’s time to start thinking about how the Bowl Subdivision will look in 2020. (Kickoff is only eight or so months away, after all.)
Here’s USA TODAY Sports’ first crack at next season with the very early Top 25, which is topped by the four familiar faces that made up the College Football Playoff: Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State and LSU.
Clemson will bring back quarterback Trevor Lawrence and its entire defensive line while adding into the mix the best recruiting class in the country. Alabama and LSU will battle for SEC supremacy, followed by Florida and Georgia. Ohio State will reload on both sides of the ball and make another run at an unbeaten regular season.
