The Kickoff has published Issue 1, revealing our Kickoff Top 50 for 2019 and assigning initial Power Ratings for teams across the nation. Clemson and Alabama occupy their familiar positions as #1 and #2, and there’s no reason that these two teams will not fight it out the whole year. Michigan, Georgia, and Ohio State round out the Top 5.
Throughout this season, we’ll refer to teams using their AP Poll Ranking followed by their rank in our Top 50, if any, inside parentheses. For example, “#18 (#17) Michigan State.”
