Predicting Every Projected Top 25 Team's First Loss of 2014
USA TODAY Sports

Losing is inevitable.

Going undefeated in a sport is very rare, and when it does happen, the feat should be applauded. However, to assume perfection will occur on a regular basis is foolish, no matter the sport and (in the case of college football) how much your coach gets paid or how great that incoming recruit class was rated.

Florida State went 14-0 last year, the only FBS team to finish unbeaten. The Seminoles join a very select group to go an entire season without a loss in the past 10 years, as only 11 others since 2004 have done so.

Yet based on the expectations of fans from pretty much every team in the country, going unbeaten this fall isn't just possible, it's downright probable. Not so fast there, folks.

We've gone ahead and given a close look at the schedules of every team currently rated in Bleacher Report's Preseason Top 25 (Post-Spring Practice Edition), and we've come to one significant conclusion: Every one of them will lose at least once this year.
