With many media outlets already releasing college football preseason top 25 polls, including more than a few here at B/R, it's time to take a look at some of the teams who will supposedly be challenging for their conference, if not the national championship crown.
Looking ahead to next year, no team emerges as one who has a clear path to the national championship. Every team will have their challenges, both on and off the field.
So, what are those challenges?
Well, here are the single biggest challenges facing every preseason top 25 team going into the 2010 season. Whether it's player suspensions, retiring coaches, or simply dealing with superior opponents, every team will have some obstacles to overcome next year.
Note: Preseason rankings were based on ESPN College Football Live's top 25 picks.
