Six of those numerous reasons are at left.
13. Louisiana State University
Welcome to the South, football fans—and, to be more specific, welcome to Louisiana Southern University, home of the Tigers.
LSU could easily find themselves in the Top 10 by the time week two rolls around, but only time will tell as the Tigers are currently No. 13 on this week's preseason poll.
12. Ole Miss University
Ole Miss University, with their Colonel Reb mascot that will soon be scratched in light of something new, are the No. 12 team entering the 2010 College Football season.

Go West, young man?
If you're staying in America, you can't go much further west than UCLA—and the Bruins enter this week's preseason poll as the No. 6 team in the country.
5. University of Texas
Everything is bigger—and better—in Texas, right?
The University of Texas Longhorns, fresh off what many have called “saving the Big 12,” enter this week’s preseason poll as the No. 5 team in the nation.
And rightfully so—Hook ’Em Horns!
4. University of Florida
Yes, we are heading back East to the beautiful state of Florida, and this time we are landing at the University of Florida.

Not much gets hotter than a Sun Devil, and Arizona State has every reason to back up that theory.
