Now that the first month of the college football season is over, ESPN went through the bottom 10 teams in the country. This list includes a couple of Power Five programs.
While most of the debate in college football circulates around the contenders, it’s time to look at programs that haven’t played to their standard.
As you’d expect, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights are on ESPN’s “Bottom 10” list due to their latest decision to fire head coach Chris Ash.
Another program on this list that is struggling to live up to its expectations is Virginia Tech. The Hokies just suffered an embarrassing loss to the Duke Blue Devils.
Other notable schools toward the bottom are UConn, UMass, Rice and South Alabama.
Coming in as the worst team on ESPN’s list is Akron, which isn’t too surprising when you look at its 0-5 record.
Here are the bottom 10 teams in college football, via ESPN:
- New Mexico State
- Virginia Tech
- Bowling Green
- South Alabama
ESPN also revealed its waiting list that includes teams that may show up in these rankings in the near future. It includes Georgia Tech, Northwestern and Purdue.
