Vegas Really Likes Missouri's Chances to Win the 2018 National Championship

  Vegas Really Likes Missouri's Chances to Win the 2018 National Championship First-year Missouri head coach Cuonzo Martin compiled a loaded 2017 recruiting class.Vegas likes the Tigers' chances of doing so.

The final CBS Sports 130 came out this week and not even my colleagues can escape my wrath.

Relative to expectations and preseason ranking, who will be college football 's most overrated — and underrated — teams in 2018? 247Sports national analyst Brad Crawford picks five programs from each side and gives reasoning for his selections.

They're going to be expected to do massive things, but will disappoint. They're the most overrated teams.

Louisiana State Tigers

It's all relative in the SEC West. Alabama will win it, Auburn will be the darling - thanks to QB Jarrett Stidham - and the rest of the division will fall into its familiar pattern. While no one will predict LSU to win it, the hope will be for RB Derrius Guice, head coach Ed Orgeron, and a slew of good talents to be enough to make a whole lot of noise.

But thanks to the adjustment of the Florida game to Gainesville - it was supposed to be at Florida last year and LSU this season before hurricane issues changed that up - there's an ugly second half with the Gators, Ole Miss, Alabama and Tennessee all away from Death Valley.

Expanding College Football Playoff beyond four teams not under consideration

  Expanding College Football Playoff beyond four teams not under consideration Executive director Bill Hancock said the current format helps "keep the focus on the regular season."Three years into the current system, though, College Football Playoff executive director Bill Hancock says there have been no discussions at the highest level about adding teams to the fold.

More important than where college football teams start, of course, is where they finish. Any conversation of overrated football teams would not be complete without mentioning one team that just missed the top 25 in this year’s first AP ranking: Notre Dame.2 Entrenched in our college football

College football analyst Grey Papke looks at the 10 most overrated college football teams for 2018. College football season is just around the corner, and it will only be a matter of time before the legitimate preseason polls are out.

North Carolina Tar Heels

Will the addition of LSU castoff Brandon Harris help the quarterback situation - if he wins the job? Not enough to overcome a rough year for the Tar Heels in the ACC.

The lines won't be physical enough. The run defense will still be an issue, the ground attack will continue to be just okay, and there's too much turnover on both sides to be in the ACC title hunt.

The Tar Heels have to face Louisville, Notre Dame and Miami at home, and go on the road to face Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Pitt and NC State. Uh oh.

Penn State Nittany Lions

They'll be good, but they're not going to repeat the Big Ten championship magic.

RB Saquon Barkley will be amazing, QB Trace McSorley will be solid, and the defense should have its moments of dominance, but now the bar is set higher and just finishing with a nice bowl appearance will seem a little bit flat.

The Nittany Lions get Michigan at home, but they go to Ohio State and Michigan State over the following two weeks, and they have to go to Iowa - ask 2016 Michigan what that's like.

Top 5 Underrated College Football Teams

  Top 5 Underrated College Football Teams They're going to be the top 5 underrated college football teams that won't get a whole lot of early respect, but look out. - Contact/[email protected][email protected] CFN Preview 2017Central Michigan ChippewasEvery year there's a dangerous team from the MAC who turns into a thorn in everyone's side. Last year it was Western Michigan vs. Illinois and Northwestern, and it was Central Michigan in the win over Oklahoma State. This year, CMU will be just that in an even bigger and better season.

These are technically the most overrated college football teams ever, but they didn’t ask to be ranked. Many have nuanced context at play, such as a key injury, but the rankings are the rankings.

So these preseason polls matter, which is why I feel the need to point out which five teams in the preseason Coaches Poll I believe are overrated . Michigan will likely be a top 15 team in college football this year.

Again, it'll be a good team, but three regular season losses will seem a whole lot more than the three losses overall last year.

USC Trojans

If USC doesn't start the season in the preseason top three of the two main polls, it'll be in the top five. As good as Sam Darnold might be, and as strong as the talent might be on both sides of the ball, the lines will be just average enough to be a problem.

This will be more like a 10-2 USC than a 12-0 killer - and the two-loss prediction might be generous. The Trojans can't slip at home early against UCLA, Stanford or Texas, and can't biff a road date at Washington State, Notre Dame or Arizona State. It'll be enough to finish out of the College Football Playoff.

Wyoming Cowboys

The Cowboys will go bowling, but their fans will be going for more.

After winning the Mountain Division of the Mountain West, and with all the attention paid to Josh Allen, Wyoming is supposed to be a major player again in the league chase, and some will pick an upset or two over Iowa and Oregon in the first few weeks, but no.

Allen will be amazing at times, but he won't be able to carry the team through road games against Utah State, Boise State and Air Force, and there won't be wins over the Hawkeyes or Ducks in the first three weeks.

Alabama: 15/4: <p>The Crimson Tide lost a boatload of talent to the NFL, along with offensive minds Lane Kiffin and Steve Sarkisian. However, quarterback Jalen Hurts returns alongside running back Bo Scarbrough and wideout Calvin Ridley. The defense is inexperienced but has more than enough talent to perform. Nick Saban's team is the clear favorite, as usual.</p> 2017 college football national championship odds


Pac-12 Football Championship Game staying in Santa Clara through 2019, should move to Las Vegas after that .
To kick off its 2017 college football season, the Pac-12 started Media Days by announcing the conference would keep its football championship game in Santa Clara through at least 2019, extending the current deal two years. In 2020, it’s time to move the thing to Las Vegas.As part of this new deal the Pac-12 announced, they have the option to keep the game in Levi’s Stadium for 2020, which I like to think is the backup plan in case construction of the new Las Vegas stadium is delayed.The Oakland Raiders move to Las Vegas in 2019, and the new stadium that is located just off The Strip is set to open in 2020.
