The 2018 college football season is just over two months away. We can't wait for it to get started.

Summer practices are here and starting quarterbacks are being named. Teams are gearing up to fight for a title.

ESPN's Football Power Index has updated its preseason rankings in anticipation of the upcoming season. The rankings include strength of schedule rankings.
