Twitter/@bobarcher1We’re still over six months away from the start of the 2015 college football season, but it’s never too early to start debating which teams have the best shot at reaching the second College Football Playoff. While most fans believe that Ohio State has a great shot at repeating as national champion, there will be plenty of challengers. ESPN has already put together its Preseason FPI Ratings – which is basically an estimate of team strength (more on that here). Not surprisingly, the Buckeyes check in at No. 1, with Alabama sitting at No. 2. It may shock some fans to see LSU at No. 3 and Baylor at No. 4, however. Here are the top 25 schools, per ESPN. You can see the entire list here – all 128 teams are ranked.1. Ohio State 2. Alabama 3. LSU 4. Baylor 5. Oregon 6. TCU 7. Notre Dame 8. Ole Miss 9. Georgia 10. Arkansas 11. Texas A&M 12. UCLA 13. USC 14. Tennessee 15. Oklahoma 16. Michigan State 17. Stanford 18. Auburn 19. Clemson 20. Arizona State 21. Florida State 22. Mississippi State 23. Georgia Tech 24. Missouri 25. Virginia TechSome other surprises? Notre Dame, despite a quarterback controversy, sits at No. 7. Arkansas and Texas A&M – two teams that did not finish with winning records in the SEC West – come in at No. 10 and No. 11. And in total, there are 10 SEC teams in the top 25.
