We're only a few weeks into the our nation's current health crisis, but there are already some who are wondering whether football - either the NFL or college - could be played this year. At this point, all we can do is hope that our situation improves long before that time.

If college football season is played, per usual, there will realistically only be a handful of teams that can win it all. Last month, ESPN released its preseason FPI, along with a graphic showing the top 10 teams. Clemson, which will return quarterback Trevor Lawrence and running back Travis Etienne, is the No. 1 team heading into next season. The Tigers reached the national title game a year ago and won it all during the 2018 season. Ohio State, which fell to Clemson in the College Football Playoff last year, checks in at No. 2. The Buckeyes return quarterback Justin Fields for another run. Oklahoma and Alabama round out the top four. Both teams will be looking to replace star quarterbacks, as Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa head off to the NFL. The rest of the list is a little controversial. Penn State, Wisconsin, Texas, Texas A&M, Notre Dame and Georgia round out the top 10. Of those six, only two - Notre Dame and Georgia - have actually reached the College Football Playoff.

It's going to be a wild few months, and let's hope a ton of progress is made soon. Hopefully the 2020 college football season becomes a reality.
