Here’s The 2023 Preseason College Football ‘Bottom 10’ Ranking

As anticipation builds for the college football season, the preseason AP rankings have unveiled the top contenders. But it’s not just the best that catch attention; the teams facing challenges are also under the spotlight.

ESPN’s Ryan McGee recently spotlighted the “Bottom 10” teams as we head into the 2023 season. UMass clinches the undesired No. 1 spot, a choice influenced by a personal encounter McGee had with a UMass alumnus.

Kent State and Louisiana-Monroe follow suit, with Northwestern, the sole Power 5 team, taking the No. 4 spot. The Wildcats face an uphill battle, still reeling from a dismal 1-11 season and now navigating the absence of coach Pat Fitzgerald due to a hazing controversy.

The list continues with Sam Houston, Jacksonville State, and Charlotte. New Mexico and FIU finalize the Bottom 10. Interestingly, the fifth position went to atlas creators Rand-McNally, reflecting the considerable shifts in team placements this summer.

It’s a safe bet that McGee’s list will generate reactions from dedicated fans as the matches kick off.
