Early Top 25 college football teams for 2019

USA TODAY SPORTS Logo By USA TODAY of USA TODAY SPORTS | Slide 1 of 26: Flip through the gallery to see the USA TODAY Sports preview of what's ahead for college football in the fall.

The second national signing day and spring practices have passed since the previous USA TODAY Sports early Top 25, which had Alabama and Clemson atop the list of college football's best teams heading into the 2019 season. When it comes to the Tigers and Crimson Tide, the post-spring update isn't much of an update at all — the two national powers still lead the way.

For the rest of the Bowl Subdivision, spring practices provided a glimpse into what to expect come August.

The end of drills also provided a shakeup to our projected Top 25, with a handful of Power Five additions and several changes to the list that debuted in the wake of Clemson's national championship in January.

The initial postseason ranking for each school from January is in parenthesis.
