With the regular season over in college football, ESPN released its ‘Bottom 10′ rankings. There is surprisingly a trio of Power Five programs on the list.
Out of all the underperforming teams from this year, the UMass Minutemen managed to take the top spot. It’s not a shocking decision from ESPN when you consider UMass’ 1-11 record.
The most notable program on this list is either Arkansas or Ole Miss. Both SEC teams struggled mightily this season and fired their head coach.
Rutgers is also on this list, but the Scarlet Knights could potentially be on the rise with Greg Schiano back at the helm.
Here’s the ‘Bottom 10’ from ESPN:
- Old Dominion
- Ole Miss
- New Mexico State
- South Alabama
Maryland, NC State and Vanderbilt just missed the cut for the final rankings. All three schools started the year on the right note before fading quickly.
None of these teams are bowl eligible this season, which means they’ll all have to wait until next year to redeem themselves.
The program in the best position to bounce back in 2020 might just be Ole Miss. Besides, the Rebels had the best record out of any team on ESPN’s final list.
