Athlon Sports goes through a mind-boggling undertaking every college football preseason: ranking each and every FBS college football team--and it's usually pretty dang good. Today, Athlon Sports completed the 2014 edition, and here's where the analysts peg the MWC teams. Click on each team to see Athlon Sports' in-depth analysis.
No surprise to see Boise State and Utah State lead the way. And it's no coincidence that three of the four highest ranked MWC teams have quarterbacks on Phil Steele's Preseason All-MWC teams. But with no team even close to the Top 25 and five teams crowding the 100-128 range, it appears that Athlon Sports believes MWC football won't be very good this year. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
