College football teams will not be made in September, but some could certainly be broken by the looks of their September schedules.

Take the Michigan Wolverines, for example. No one within the shadow of Michigan Theater would want to think about or consider it, even with a veteran team, but going 2-2 in the first month is well within the realm of possibilities for the Wolverines.

They aren't the only team with high preseason expectations that could stumble early, either. And we can identify the top candidates to slip out of the top 25 coming out of the gate just by looking at the schedules.
