If you're a follower of a team that didn't quite make our College Football Future Power Rankings, don't sweat it. Things change quickly in college football. Do you think Ohio State would have been No. 2 a year ago, before Urban Meyer flipped a switch with incoming talent and an undefeated season? Where do you think Oklahoma, our No. 14, would have been a couple of years back? It was the AP preseason No. 1 in 2011.

In the cases of our first five out -- Ole Miss, Michigan State, Boise State, Washington and Tennessee -- we find programs in mostly different positions, but each with a chance to gain on those ahead of them in the coming seasons.
