The 13 biggest CFB surprise teams for 2016

The top of the 2016 college football heap is projected to look a lot like the end of 2015 -- starting with Alabama and Clemson. But what are the sneaky-good teams that could crash the CFP party?

Chris Low ESPN Senior Staff Writer 

UCLA should be one of the Pac-12's most talented teams this season, but coach Jim Mora said the Bruins' maturity and chemistry are intangibles he thinks will make UCLA a more consistent team. The Bruins are 13-7 against nationally ranked foes in Mora's four seasons, but also have some head-scratching losses and dropped three of their last four games a year ago. "We need to be more consistent every weekend and that comes with maturity," Mora said.

UCLA coach Jim Mora echoed what he told ESPN.com Thursday in regards to recently-unsealed testimony that indicates defensive coordinator Tom Bradley had knowledge of sexual abuse perpetrated by Jerry Sandusky at Penn State as far back as the 1980's. He feels for the victims and their families, stands by Bradley and said that he was thoroughly vetted before being hired at UCLA.

Jayon Brown said that it has been fun (and frustrating) to play against UCLA QB Josh Rosen in practice because he has such an ability to fit the ball in tight spaces. "It's fun because I know I'm going against the best in the nation," Brown said.

UCLA coach Jim Mora says there are two benefits to knowing starting quarterback Josh Rosen before his time as a Bruin: trust and communication. "It's not just all about football. I think Josh knows I have his best interests in mind and it's not all about football. When he makes a mistake, I can grab him and correct. And he knows he can trust it."

UCLA coach Jim Mora backs starting QB Josh Rosen's abilities as a teammate and a leader. "Maybe there's an altered perception of him as a teammate. He's teammates like him; they gravitate towards him. "He's very smart; he's very outspoken. Some people may think he's putting himself above the team, but that couldn't be further from the truth."
