There are more than six months to go until the start of the 2020 college football season. Most teams don’t even know who all of their starters are just yet. But that isn’t going to stop ESPN from making some early predictions on the top offenses heading into 2020.
On Monday, ESPN revealed its Football Power Index, previewing the best teams in the upcoming season. When it came to the top offenses in college football, there was a clear frontrunner: The Oklahoma Sooners.
Oklahoma has been an elite offenses in each of Lincoln Riley’s three seasons at the helm. They’ve put up record-setting numbers every year, and with a different QB each time.
But while several of the usual suspects – Oklahoma, Ohio State, Alabama and Clemson – all made the list, there was one surprise team that got in at No. 5: The Penn State Nittany Lions.
Stop me if you’ve heard this before… Oklahoma is expected to have the best offense in FBS despite turning to its fourth starting quarterback in as many seasons.
Here are college football’s top offenses heading into 2020.
- Ohio State
- Penn State
That certainly looks like a list of potential teams we could see in the College Football Playoff.
