The Road To Arlington

The beauty of this season's chase to the national title, played in the immense surrounds of AT&T Stadium, is the depth of brand names with a chance. Louisville. Kentucky. Michigan State. Kansas. Duke. Arizona. Florida. Those are names the game needs, the ones it craves to be relevant. There are others, and plenty of candidates outside the power conferences who can/will emerge. This top 25 will change multiple times, especially the bottom half. But we're confident we've collected the top tier of schools who will dominate your bracket, fill you with intrigue and perplex you at times, wondering if they belong in the conversation for the league, conference and, yes, national title.
