NCAA: 5 Underrated Teams Coming into the 2019 College Football Season
As we draw closer and closer to the start of the college football season the questions start with who will be a surprise this year. There were many teams last year. This what makes college football exciting to see which team will stand out. We know teams like UCF has been that way the last two years. The doubters of UCF will say they don’t play anyone to be underrated. Here are the 5 teams that are underrated for the 2019 season.
The Orange finished the 2018 college football season at 10-2. They were perfect at home and their two losses came on the road. The Orange lost to Notre Dame and Clemson. Those two teams met each other in the playoff. The Tigers would go on to win the National Championship. Look for the Orange to be at the top of the ACC again in 2019.
2) Utah Utes
The Utes finished the 2018 season with a record of 9-5. They were near perfect at home only losing one game. Their record was 5-1 at home. The Utes would lose to the Huskies in the PAC 12 Championship game. They were strong and should be looked at to continue that in the 2019 college football season.
The Wolverines finished the 2018 college football season with a record of 10-3. They finished second to their rivals the Ohio State Buckeyes. The Wolverines would have a tough bowl game loss to the Florida Gators. Head Coach Jim Harbaugh is on the hot seat if he can’t beat Michigan State and Ohio State in 2019. This team will be right back in the Big 10 in 2019.
4) Florida State Seminoles
The Seminoles finished the 2018 season with a 5-7 record. Many will overlook them in 2019. Head coach Willie Taggert is on the hot seat. If they have another disappointing season he might be gone. If they can solve their problems from last year they can get back on winning track.
5) USF Bulls
The Bulls finished the 2018 college football season with a 7-6 record. The started off hot winning their first 7 games. The wheels came off and they lost their final 6 including the Gasparilla Bowl. The Bulls made some coaching changes in bringing in Kerwin Bell. Look for the Bulls to be a highly fueled offense. If they can stop teams on defense this team should be able to beat the UCF Knights this year.
