Lindsy Releases Their 2010 Pre Season Top 25

Lindy's magazine released their top 25 for the 2010 as well as their All-Americans for the upcoming season.  The usual suspects are there with Alabama still being the consensus number one, Boise State staying in the top three (two here), and the 2010 version of Ole Miss who happens to be Arkansas is at 16.

1. Alabama

2. Boise State

3. Ohio State

4. Texas


6. Wisconsin

7. TCU

8. Virginia Tech

9. Oklahoma

10. Iowa

11. Nebraska

12. USC

13. North Carolina

14. Pittsburgh

15. Oregon

16. Arkansas

17. Georgia Tech

18. LSU

19. West Virginia

20. Miami

21. Georgia

22. Cincinnati

23. Houston

24. Penn State

25. Utah

The only ranking that stands out on the list is Houston at 23, Georgia Tech at 17, and Oregon at 15.  The reason I include Oregon is because a lot of other publications or pundits have them in the top 10, which by seasons end could be the case but with the quarterback questions a top ten ranking is too high.  

Now below are LIndy's All-American list where only BYU's great offensive lineman Matt Reynolds makes the list from the Mountain West.
