Louisiana State

There is no shortage of talent at Louisiana State, but the Tigers will go only as far as the quarterbacking will carry them. Quarterbacking issues in 2014 resulted in a record of 8-5, including an embarrassing loss to Notre Dame...

Louisiana Tech

Louisiana Tech made significant strides in Skip Holtz's second season as coach. The Bulldogs were 4-8 in 2013 but finished 9-4 last season, which included a smashing bowl victory over Illinois. The team is projected to once again be in...

North Texas

Dan McCarney had to make chicken salad out of chicken you-know-what when he arrived in Denton in 2011. North Texas had won only seven games in four seasons under the previous regime. It took McCarney, the former Iowa State coach,...

Samford

Samford of Divison I-AA has a new coach in Chris Hatcher, replacing Pat Sullivan. The Bulldogs open against Central Arkansas on Sept. 3 and play at Louisville on Sept. 26. Poster designed by Old Hat Creative.

Marist

Division I-AA Marist was 4-7 in 2014. The Red Foxes open Sept. 5 against Bucknell. Poster designed by Old Hat Creative.

Presbyterian

Abilene Christian

Northwest Missouri State

Northwest Missouri State, winners of the 2009 Division II national championship, opens Sept. 3 against Nebraska Kearney

Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt seemingly did the impossible in 2012-13 with back-to-back nine-win seasons to close out the James Franklin era. Derek Mason took over in 2014 and the Commodores tumbled to 3-9. It's a long climb back and a midseason stretch that...

Cincinnati

Tommy Tuberville has put together back-to-back nine-win seasons at Cincinnati, but the Bearcats lack a signature victory. The big problem in 2014 was the defense — or lack of defense. Cincinnati gave up 710 yards to Ohio State and finished...

Purdue

Could be a make-or-break season for Purdue coach Darrell Hazell, who has won only four games in two seasons. The Boilermaker defense relied on several freshmen and sophomores last season and it showed down the stretch as the team lost...

UCLA

UCLA returns 17 of 22 starters, but one of the departures is a big one — quarterback Brett Hundley. The likely starting QB is junior Jerry Neuheisel, the son of former Bruin Rick Neuheisel. If the younger Neuheisel can't handle...

Maryland

Not a bad debut season in the Big Ten for Maryland. The Terrapins finished third in the East Division behind Ohio State and Michigan State and won road games at Penn State and Michigan. But Maryland has much rebuilding to...

Arizona

Arizona has won 26 games in Rich Rodriguez's three seasons, the most of any coach in a three-year period, and expectations are sky-high. It's a fun team to watch — averaging 34.5 points a game in 2014 — and quarterback...

South Carolina

South Carolina is attempting to rebound from a 7-6 season, its worst since 2009. This is Steve Spurrier's 11th season in Columbia and the 70 year old says rivals are using age against him on the recruiting trail. This seems...

Oregon State

It's a fresh start for Oregon State, which produced this beautiful two-sided poster. Mike Riley, the dean of Pacific 12 coaches who spent 14 seasons in Corvallis, left in December for Nebraska. The Beavers replaced him with Gary Andersen, who...

Indiana

Could be a make-or-break fall for Indiana coach Kevin Wilson, who enters his fifth season with a 14-34 record. The September schedule is favorable with three winnable home games and a trip to Wake Forest. Big boy football starts Oct...

Washington State

Washington State took a step back in Mike Leach's third season, tumbling to a 3-9 record after appearing in the New Mexico Bowl in 2013. Much of the blame was put on the defense, which ranked 97th nationally. Leach fired...

Toledo

Toledo has put together five consecutive winning seasons and there's ample talent to keep the streak going. However, the offensive line lost its five starters and a quick rebuild will be the determining factor in how far the Rockets can...

Alabama

You either love them or hate them. There's no middle ground when it comes to discussing Alabama's program, which has been on an elite level since Nick Saban came to Tuscaloosa. The Crimson Tide, who open against Wisconsin, will be.....
