With the tiger fight in New Orleans over, LSU winning its fourth national title and Ed Orgeron's deep bayou voice careening off televisions, it is certainly time to look ahead to 2020-2021. All four College Football Playoff teams should be in the mix to get back into title contention, but there are several other schools that could be the next LSU. Repeating as champion is tough (ask Clemson), especially when the guy who led the team and won a Heisman Trophy by throwing 60 touchdowns is off to the NFL.
There is a lot to be sorted out over the next few weeks, as players make draft decisions and the transfer portal becomes an even more integral part of college athletics. But that doesn't stop us from taking a way-too-early look at the top 25 for next season.
