Florida is rebuilding under Will Muschamp and Florida State's Jimbo Fisher has cleaned house, cutting loose the bad seeds of his program. Florida dominated the top college-football era during the Tim Tebow/Urban Meyer era. Now it's the ‘Noles turn, being ranked in the top 10 in most preseason polls while Florida barely cracks the top 25.
7. ARKANSAS VS. LSU
The preseason No. 10 team against the preseason No. 1 team: it's the game of the underrated and possibly overrated. Can Les Miles return his team too dominance again this year despite the loss of Tyrann Mathieu? Can Arkansas go through a smooth season without former coach Bobby Petrino? The last conference game will determine a lot in the minds of college football fans.
8. GEORGIA AT SOUTH CAROLINA
This is a classic run vs. pass game. The return of South Carolina's star running back Marcus Lattimore from a knee injury against Georgia's quarterback, Aaron Murray, who set a school record with 35 touchdown passes in 2011.
9. CLEMSON VS. VIRGINIA TECH
Can Virginia Tech revenge it's troubles against Clemson from last year? The Hokies and the Tigers will meet in the last game of the year. If Clemson's year goes anything like last (after they had a 7-0 start and only two wins in their last six games) then this game is a must see of two mid-tier preseason teams.
10. OHIO STATE VS. NEBRASKA
A couple of years ago, before the Buckeyes turmoil under Jim Tressel and Nebraska's withdrawl from the Big 12, this would have ranked as a higher game. It rounds out the top 10 today because the two Big Ten programs are adjusting their game to return to the top.
