We head to another college football season asking if Alabama can repeat.  The Tide won another National Championship last season with a close win over Clemson.  While stocked with talent, they again will be breaking in a new QB and play in the toughest division in college football.

The Tide aren’t #1 in our 2016 Preseason Power Rankings though.  They’re not far from the top spot but another team from last year’s playoff sits atop our rankings.

The scandal at Baylor has left a lot of questions in Waco.  With Art Briles out as coach and Jim Grobe in, what changes will there be with the Bears?  They’ll be glad when the games get here but what kind of focus will this team have after this upheaval?

See how the Bears will do in our conference predictions.  We’ve got predicted records and conference standings for all 128 college football teams this season.
