In this thread I will be posting my BCS AQ Conference Preview/Predictions.

What you will find in this thread:

* Schedules for every team in a BCS AQ Conference.

* Schedules for each team will be broken down into 3 sets of 4 games each (1st 4 games, 2nd 4 games, last 4 games). I will outline what I think is the most realistic "Best case," "Middle case," and "Worst case" scenarios of each of those sets of games and then make my prediction for each team and how they will finish the season.

* I will predict the top 5 finishers in each conference. In the case of conferences with two divisions, I will predict the top 6 finishers (top 3 in each division). I will post a write up on the top 4-6 teams in each conference.

* I will predict the conference championship matchups and conference winners.

* Toughest/Least Toughest OOC schedule for each conference.

* Toughest/Least Toughest Conference schedule for each conference.

* Predictions on whether teams will make a bowl game or not.

What you will not find in this thread:

* A top 25 poll/prediction.

* All-American Team(s)

* Specific Bowl predictions

* Specific win/loss predictions for specific games (unless asked)

* Write ups for teams finishing at the bottom of their conferences (unless asked)

Feel free to leave questions/comments now.

Conference Championship Game: Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Florida State Seminoles

OTHER:

Toughest OOC Schedule: Miami (FL) Hurricanes

Weakest OOC Schedule: Duke Blue Devils/North Carolina Tar Heels/North Carolina State Wolfpack


Toughest Conference Schedule: Duke Blue Devils

Weakest Conference Schedule: North Carolina Tar Heels

Write-Ups:

1. Florida State Seminoles: FSU wins the ACC led by a monstrous defense that could challenge for a top 5 defense, if not the #1 defense in the nation. The defensive front should set the tone led by DE's Brandon Jenkins, Tank Carradine, and Bjoern Werner and DT's Tim Jernigan, Everett Dawkins, Jacobbi McDaniel, and Demonte McAllister. Joining them are incoming freshman DL Mario Edwards (consensus top 5 recruit), DE Chris Casher, and DT Eddie Goldman. Christian Jones and Telvin Smith should lead a very athletic and talented LB core. Holding down the secondary is Lamarcus Joyner, Xavier Rhodes, Nick Waisome, Karlos Williams with youngsters PJ Williams and Ronald Darby potentially adding even more depth and athleticism to the secondary. Offensively, QB EJ Manuel is a senior and has a talented receiving core with WR Rashad Greene, Christian Green, Kenny Shaw, Willie Haulstead, Greg Dent and two youngster who could have a big impact RS FR Kelvin Benjamin (6'5 243) and TR FR Marvin Bracy (track star speed) and TE Nick O'Leary. RB Devonta Freeman should lead a talented, but young backfield and give the offense some balance. A very young OL could hold the offense back, but they all played a lot last season and appeared to start maturing late in the season. Exactly how good FSU can be will likely depend on how the OL plays.

2. Virginia Tech Hokies: Logan Thomas is arguably the top QB in the ACC and is a major threat passing and running. He will need some skill guys to step up as he lost David Wilson, Jarrett Boykin and Danny Coale - his 3 biggest playmakers last year. WR Marcus Davis and Dyrell Roberts will need to step up and a RB will need to be found, but the VT offense should be very good. Bud Foster defenses always seem to make plays and play overall sound football. This year should be no different. VT takes the division crown in a down year for the Coastal Division.

3. Clemson Tigers: The Tigers boast the top passing attack in the division led by QB Tajh Boyd and WR's Sammy Watkins, DeAndre Hopkins, Charone Peake, and Martavis Bryant. RB Andre Ellington is a good RB that balance the offense out. The Tigers are a serious threat for the ACC crown however they have a lot of youth on the two deep at both OL and DL, that fact and the propensity of Clemson to drop games they shouldn't has them where they are.

4. Virginia Cavaliers: I am really high on Mike London's squad, maybe more than I should be, but they are my darkhorse to challenge for the ACC crown. UVA has a solid QB, a strong running game (led by Perry Jones and Kevin Parks), and a big time playmaker at WR in Darius Jennings. The defense has some potential to make some noise, how much could depend on the influx of some talented freshman including DE Eli Harold, DE Courtnye Wynn, DE Mike Moore, and LB Kwontie Moore.

BOWL VERDICT: DOES NOT QUALIFY

PREDICTIONS:


1. Louisville Cardinal

4. Cincinnati Bearcats
5. Syracuse Orange

Conference Champion: Louisville Cardinal

OTHER:

Toughest OOC Schedule: Syracuse Orange

Weakest OOC Schedule: Cincinnati Bearcats


Toughest Conference Schedule: Connecticut Huskies

Weakest Conference Schedule: Cincinnati Bearcats

Write-Ups:

1. Louisville Cardinal: Louisville is arguably the most talented team in the Big East and Coach Strong & Co. are able to utilize that talent. QB Teddy Bridgewater is a big time QB that has talented weapons to utilize in WR Michaelee Harris, WR Eli Rogers, WR Robert Clark (Florida transfer), RB Jeremy Wright, and TE Gerald Christian (Florida transfer). Louisville also boasts a number of young, talented defenders in S Gerod Hollimon, DE BJ Dubose, a pair of freshman LB's in Keith Brown and Nick Dawson and veterans DE BJ Butler, LB Preston Brown, and DB Adrian Bushell (Florida transfer).

2. South Florida Bulls: USF will have an explosive offense led by SR QB BJ Daniels. Lindsey Lamar is a talented RB and Daniels has a nice group of weapons in the pass game that includes WR Andre Davis, WR Chris Dunkley (Florida transfer), WR Victor Marc, TE Mike McFarland and others. Defensively DT Todd Chandler and DE Ryne Giddins look to hold down the defensive front and CB Kayvon Webster is a quality DB.

3. Pittsburgh Panthers: The Pitt Panthers could also be known as the Big Ten defectors this year as they poached a good portion of the Wisconsin coaching staff including new head coach Paul Chryst. The team also boasts Big Ten transfers in DB's Cullen Christian and Ray Vinopal (Michigan) and LB Ejuan Price (OSU). Pitt should have a formidable run game led by SR Ray Graham and FR Rushel Shell and WR Cameron Saddler is a nice outside threat. Pitt should have a nice defense led by DL Aaron Donald, TJ Clemmings, and Shayne Hale. QB Tino Sunseri leaves something to be desired as a signal caller and is one of the reasons the Panthers finish 3rd.

BOWL VERDICT: Bowl Game

PREDICTIONS:

1. Texas Longhorns
2. Oklahoma Sooners
3. West Virginia Mountaineers
4. Oklahoma State Cowboys
5. Kansas State Wildcats

Conference Champion: Texas Longhorns

OTHER:

Toughest OOC Schedule: Iowa State Cyclones

Weakest OOC Schedule: Texas Tech Red Raiders


Toughest Conference Schedule: TCU Horned Frogs

Weakest Conference Schedule: Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys

Write-Ups:

1. Texas Longhorns: Their back. The Longhorns have enormous potential under Mack Brown and year 2 under the schemes of Bryan Harsin (OC) and Manny Diaz (DC). The Longhorns have arguably the best RB group in the nation featuring Malcolm Brown (former 5* RB), Jonathan Gray (5* RB), Joe Bergeron, and explosive FR Daje Johnson - in addition DJ Monroe can play RB and WR. QB David Ash got off to an inconsistent start to his career, but a few things to keep in mind are 1) He was a true FR, 2) He was in a QB battle throughout spring/camp last year (he was an EE) and didn't get full time #1 reps until late, and 3) It was the first year with a new OC, so even the veterans on the team couldn't help him as they too were learning a new offense. Ash should improve this year now that he is the guy at QB and has a solid OL and a great RB group to take pressure off. At Ash's disposal will be WR Mike Davis who will look to live up to his hype, WR Jaxon Shipley, and a pair of talented FR in WR Cayleb Jones and Kendall Sanders. The Horns possess a defense that should be in the top 5 and contend for the top spot. Alex Okafor, Jackson Jeffcoat, Reggie Wilson, Ashton Doresy, Desmond Jackson, and TR FR Malcom Brown have the makings of an elite DL rotation. AT LB Steve Edmond, Jordan Hicks, and Deandre Cobbs are among the most athletic and talented in the conference and possibly the nation. The secondary has enough talent to limit even the most explosive offenses in the conference thanks to Quandre Diggs, Kenny Vaccaro, Carrington Byndom and the rest of the secondary. PSU transfer K Anthony Fera should help the special teams as well

2. Oklahoma Sooners: The Sooners have the potential to have an explosive offense with QB Landry Jones, QB Blake Bell (in his short yardage role), RB Dominique Whaley and Roy Finch, and WR's Kenny Stills, PSU transfer Justin Brown and a couple talented freshman WR (Durron Neal and Trey Metoyer). For all the firepower the Sooners have, it could go through bouts of inconsistency as they have already suffered injuries and issues regarding their OL. The Sooners have a strong back 7 on defense led by S Tony Jefferson.

3. West Virginia Mountaineers: New conference, no problem for WVU? Not so fast. The Mountaineers are loaded on offense led by potential Heisman candidate QB Geno Smith and have a great WR group led by Tavon Austin. While Dana Holgerson has familiarity with the conference, his team does not. Expect WVU to have a few stumbling blocks as well as a few games that are closer than they should be in year 1 in the Big 12.

4. Oklahoma State Cowboys: Okie State loses QB Brandon Weeden and WR Justin Blackmon and while many consider the offense to be a "system" offense where you can plug and play anyone, I think people may be overstating that a bit. While the offense does lend itself to big #'s the Cowboys will be starting either a RS FR or true freshman at QB, they don't appear to have a big time go-to WR ready to take over in the mold of the past Okie State WR either (Blackmon, Bryant, Woods, etc.). Joseph Randle will have to carry the load on offense until the passing game gets on track. The defense has some individual playmakers such as LB Shaun Lewis and CB Justin Gilbert, but leaves something to be desired as a unit.

5. Kansas State Wildcats: QB Collin Klein is back leading the Wildcats hoping to replicate last season's success, unfortunately for KSU he falls short. The regression for KSU's overall record has more to do with additions to the schedule and improvements from other teams than it is a regression of KSU as a team.

PREDICTIONS:

Legends:

1. Michigan Wolverines
2. Nebraska Cornhuskers
3. Iowa Hawkeyes/Michigan State Spartans

Leaders:

1. Wisconsin Badgers
2. Ohio State Buckeyes
3. Penn State Nittany Lions/Illinois Fighting Illini

Conference Championship Game: Michigan Wolverines vs. Wisconsin Badgers
Conference Champion: Michigan Wolverines

OTHER:

Toughest OOC Schedule: Michigan Wolverines

Weakest OOC Schedule: Indiana Hoosiers


Toughest Conference Schedule: Nebraska Cornhuskers

Weakest Conference Schedule: Iowa Hawkeyes

Write-Ups:

1. Michigan Wolverines: The Wolverines take the Big Ten crown led by a senior QB Denard Robinson. Robinson is the most explosive player in the conference and should continue improving as a passer in year 2 of the Al Borges offense. The Wolverines will compete for the top offense in the conference and will battle Wisconsin for the top OL in the conference. If the Wolverines can find a consistent #2 RB, a #3 WR, and a solid TE, the offense could be near unstoppable. Defensively the Wolverines return 8 starters, including the entire back 7. Michigan will compete for the top defense in the conference, but in order to do so must replace 3 starting DL. DT Mike Martin and DE Ryan VanBergen will be very tough to replace as they were both big, physical multi-year starters but the Wolverines to have some talent waiting in the wing(ed Helmets). Jibreel Black moves inside to DT and provides an improvement athletically and has experience, the question is can he stand up against the run. Former 5* DT Will Campbell and 5* TR FR DT Ondre Pipkins will look to replace Mike Martin. The Wolverines also return their K and P and should have a solid ST unit.

2. Wisconsin Badgers: The Badgers should compete for the best offense in the conference led by Montee Ball and the Wisconsin rush offense. Wisconsin will likely have a top 2 offensive line and a top 3 rushing offense. If the Badgers offense will be the tops in the conference they will need to have a positive impact from the QB position. The Badgers should have a solid defense led by LB Chris Borland. The Badgers have an easy path to Indianapolis with two division foes bowl ineligible.

3. Nebraska Cornhuskers: The Huskers should fair better in year 2 in the Big Ten. Taylor Martinez and Rex Burkhead lead a nice 1-2 punch rushing and the Huskers have talent behind Burkhead. Nebraska has talent at WR and TE, if Martinez can improve at all in his passing efficiency, Nebraska could be very dangerous on offense. The Huskers will need to do a good job replacing the losses of 3 key defensive players in DL Jared Crick, DB Alfonzo Dennard, and LB Lavonte David from last years squad.

4. Iowa Hawkeyes: Despite AIRBHG striking already, Iowa should still have a solid offense led by QB James Vandenberg. Iowa always maintains a solid at worst OL and should be able to run the ball with whomever survives AIRBHG. The defense should also be improved led by CB Micah Hyde.

5. Michigan State Spartans: The Spartans should have one of the best defenses in the conference and the nation that should keep them competitive in most games. Unlike years past though, the Spartans have few veterans on offense, replacing their starting QB, top 3 WR, 2 of the top 3 TE, a starting OL, and the #2 RB. LeVeon Bell will be charged with carrying the offense until the passing game develops. While Bell is a top 5 RB in conference he is more of a power back which could make it a bit easier for opposing defenses to stack the box. The Spartans return 9 of 11 starters on defense and boast arguably the best LB core in the conference. The two starters that need to be replaced will tell the tale for MSU having a good defense or a great defense. The Spartans must replace S Trenton Robinson who was one of the secondary leaders and Jerel Worthy who was the best player on MSU's defense and arguably their most important. Can the rest of the DL pick up the slack? Ultimately it is the lack of experience on offense that keeps the Spartans from the divisional and Big Ten crown.

6. Ohio State Buckeyes: The Buckeyes are breaking in a new offense that should fit Braxton Miller great, however the rest of the offense may struggle with the transition, particularly the OL. OSU has talent at RB and WR but it is largely unproven and/or inconsistent with questions about how it fits. Still Miller and the OSU defense should keep the Buckeyes competitive in most games. The defense will compete with several others in the conference for the top defense and should be a top 10-15 defense in the country provided they stay healthy and have improved LB play. LB Ryan Shazier is a missile waiting to explode into ball carriers. NOTE: OSU is placed 6th in the tiebreaker here due to not being bowl eligible.

BOWL VERDICT: Bowl Game

PREDICTIONS:

North:

1. Oregon Ducks
2. Stanford Cardinal
3. Washington Huskies

South:

1. USC Trojans
2. UCLA Bruins
3. Utah Utes

Conference Championship Game: Oregon Ducks vs. USC Trojans
Conference Champion: USC Trojans

OTHER:

Toughest OOC Schedule: Oregon State Beavers

Weakest OOC Schedule: Oregon Ducks


Toughest Conference Schedule: Arizona Wildcats and Colorado Buffaloes

Weakest Conference Schedule: Utah Utes

Write-Ups:

1. USC Trojans: The Trojans are absolutely loaded at every positions on offense. QB Matt Barkley is a Heisman contender, WR Robert Woods and Marqise Lee are Biletnikoff candidates, RB's Silas Redd and Curtis McNeal are a great one-two punch. TE's Randall Telfer, Xavier Grimble and true freshman Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick is a stacked unit and WR George Farmer and true freshman Nelson Agholor join Lee and Woods to from the most talented WR core in the nation. The offensive line is led by C Khaled Holmes and OT's Aundrey Walker and Kevin Graf. Defensively the Trojans have a young, but talented front 7 including LB Lamar Dawson, LB Dion Bailey, LB Hayes Pullard, and DT George Uko. CB Nickell Robey leads a talented secondary along with S TJ McDonald. Florida transfer Josh Shaw and JUCO transfer Gerald Bowman should help the depth in the secondary as well. The Trojans are a serious threat to challenge for a National Title.

2. Oregon Ducks: While Oregon loses LMJ and Darron Thomas, they will still have an explosive offense led by RB Kenjon Barner, RB/ATH De'Anthony Thomas and WR Josh Huff. If true freshman DL Arik Armstead can come in a make an instant impact the defensive line could surprise some people with Armstead and DE Dion Jordon.

3. Stanford Cardinal: Stanford is a talented team that will be led by a strong defense and a strong running game as it looks to break in a new starting QB. The Cardinal have a very strong LB core and stable of RB's. Stanford falls short as their offense is not as explosive as the Ducks or Trojans.

4. UCLA Bruins: The news Bruins coaching staff makes an instant impact and makes UCLA my surprise Pac-12 team. QB Brett Hundley has been named the starter and has a lot of potential in Mora's offense. UCLA will see marked improvement over past teams, but like with any new coaching staff, there will be some inconsistencies.

5. Washington Huskies: The Huskies are a talented team, but are a year or two away from contending for the Pac-12 crown. QB Keith Price leads an offense that has the potential to be really good thanks to a couple of big targets in TE Austin Sefarin-Jenkins and WR Kasen Williams. The Secondary could be sneaky good with CB Desmond Trufant, S Sean Parker, and true freshman S Shaq Thompson.

PREDICTIONS:

East:

1. Georgia Bulldogs
2. South Carolina Gamecocks
3. Florida Gators

West:

1. LSU Tigers
2. Alabama Crimson Tide
3. Arkansas Razorbacks

Conference Championship Game: Georgia Bulldogs vs. LSU Tigers
Conference Champion: Georgia Bulldogs

OTHER:

Toughest OOC Schedule: South Carolina Gamecocks

Weakest OOC Schedule: Mississippi State Bulldogs and Texas A&M Aggies


Toughest Conference Schedule: Ole Miss Rebels

Weakest Conference Schedule: Vanderbilt Commodores

Write-Ups:

1. Georgia Bulldogs: The Bulldogs have had a trouble off season with several players being suspended and/or kicked off the team. Luckily for the Bulldogs they should be able to navigate the first 4 games of their season with ease until the suspended players get back. QB Aaron Murray lead the Bulldog offense and is arguably the SEC's best QB. RB Ken Malcome, and true freshman RB Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall should lead a rush attack that could surprise some people with its effectiveness. WR Tavarres King is a talented and reliable WR target for Murray. Georgia is my pick for SEC champs thanks to their defense (and Murray). LB Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree lead what is arguably the best LB core in the nation that is not only effective stopping the run, but also rushing the passer. True freshman LB John Jenkins is a name to keep an eye on - he is supremely talented and could make major noise rushing the passer opposite Jarvis Jones.The DL is led by Kwame Geathers and John Jenkins, they will be joined by youngsters Ray Drew, true freshman Jonathan Taylor and others to from a talented and deep DL. The UGA secondary is talented and once the suspensions run their course could be the best in the conference led by CB Branden Smith, S Bacarri Rambo, CB Sanders Commings and WR turned CB Malcolm Mitchell. Mitchell has supreme talent at both WR and CB (where I believe he was originally recruited before moving to WR last year). It is possible Mitchell plays both ways. Georgia is a dark horse for a National Title berth.

2. LSU Tigers: The Tigers suffered a big hit with the Honey Badger being kicked off the team. LSU fans shouldn't fret, as they have more than enough talent to compete for the SEC crown and a National Championship. DE Sam Montgomery and (All Name team) Barkevious Mingo is arguably the best pass rush duo in the country. DT Anthony Johnson is a monster of a man in the middle and the Tigers have talented depth behind the aforementioned stars. S Eric Reid is arguably the best S in the nation and CB Tharold Simon is a talented CB who was overshadowed last year by Mathieu and Morris Claiborne. The Tigers offense will be led by a strong run game featuring Spencer Ware and Kenny Hilliard running behind a strong OL. QB Zach Mettenberger will look to lead the offense and improve upon an inconsistent pass game. Look out for WR Odell Beckham. The Tigers also return P Brad Wing who embarrasses other teams and makes other P's envy him.

3. Alabama Crimson Tide: The Tide lost a lot, particularly on defense and have suffered from some injuries and transfers in the depth department. Fortunately for Alabama, they have done an amazing job recruiting and have the talent and depth to not have any of that cripple their season. QB AJ McCarron looks to take the next step in his development and he is protected by arguably the best OL in the nation. The Tide have some young playmakers waiting to break free in true freshman RB TJ Yeldon, true freshman WR Amari Cooper, and WR DeAndrew White. RB Eddie Lacy and RB/FB Jalston Fowler will wear opposing defenses down provided they can stay healthy. DL Jesse Williams leads a big, strong DL that hopes to eat space to let a talented LB core roam free. LB Trey DePriest, LB CJ Mosley, and LB Nico Johnson look to terrorize opposing offenses. The DB's are young, but talented in TR FR Geno Smith, TR FR Landon Collins, TR SO HaHa Clinton-Dix and TR SO DB Vinnie Sunseri; SR S Robert Lester is a playmaker who provides veteran leadership for the young secondary.

4. South Carolina Gamecocks: Gamecock fans should be extremely happy on offense despite losing Alshon Jeffery. RB Marcus Lattimore returns from injury and they are fully rid of embattled QB Stephen Garcia as QB Connor Shaw takes over the reigns under center for the Ole Ball Coach. DE Jadeveon Clowney and Devin Taylor provide a fearsome pass rush. USCe could be a dark horse to challenge for the conference crown if they can get some consistency on offense and Lattimore returns to form.

5. Florida Gators: The Gators have an extremely talented defense led by the front 7. DL Dominique Easley and Shariff Floyd will lead the DL and talented true freshman Dante Fowler has been impressing in camp. The LB's are led by Jelani Jenkins. The defense will have to carry the Gators as there are still questions on offense.

6. Arkansas Razorbacks: QB Tyler Wilson leads an Arkansas offense that will be interesting to watch. On one side, the Razorbacks get RB Knile Davis back after he missed last year with an injury and they still have WR Cobi Hamilton; on the other hand, Davis is coming off an injury and it is uncertain how good he will be, Wilson lost WR's Joe Adams and Jairus Wright and they lost coach Bobby Petrino. I don't expect the offense to be as good as it was last year and Arkansas doesn't have the defense to make up for it.

ACC and Big East are done.

Probably get Big 12 and Big Ten done tomorrow.

Pac-12 and SEC the day after.

Looks good. I like USF a little more than LVille. But you can argue either way.

Your FSU writeup is pretty spot on, watch out for CB Tyler Hunter he will play a major part for us this year. I'd be happy going 10-2 and winning the ACC.
Who do you see us losing too?

Likely @ VT and either vs. Clemson or another game that they unexpectedly lose. Could also see 11-1, though I want to see more of how the OL improved over the offseason.

You do realize that everyone plays everyone in the Big XII right?

Yeah, but they don't all play everyone in the same place nor do they have the same amount of home games.

It isn't a case of those two have a vastly easier schedule or anything, but it is aided by having 4 road games.

Oklahoma:

Neutral Site vs. Texas
KSU home
OKST home

@ WVU is their only tough road game

Oklahoma State:

Texas home
WVU home

@ Oklahoma
@ KSU

are their toughest road games in conference. Also, 1 of their 4 road games is @ Kansas.


And with that, my Big 12 predictions are now up.
