CBS Sports Selects Top College Football Program Per State in 2020
Whether playing this fall or not, this is the team to keep your eye on.
2020 sure is a strange and unfortunate year. On the ever-growing list of things this pandemic has messed up, if a complete college football season. Three conferences aren't comfortable even trying to do a season in the fall so they are looking to push things to the spring. Those schools include the Big Ten, Pac-12 and Mountain West. Others will give it a go and while we all sit holding our breath things don't get canceled.
CBS Sports decided to not let the pandemic win in regards to their annual list of the Best College Football Team in Each State.
They decided to treat the list as they would any other year, looking at the past season performances and the off season moves. CBS is quick to remind us that this is not a list of teams with the most storied success over the years. The furthest they went back to make these decisions was three years and that was only if two teams were too similar in the last year alone.
For Wyoming, they selected Wyoming.
Surprised? We aren't either. I mean, our Cowboys are the only Division I football program in the state, but I believe we could knock out other competition if we had it. Our Pokes know how to turn heads. Not only did we take a then-ranked Boise State to overtime, but we finished the 2019 season at 8-5 with a win over Georgia State in the Arizona Bowl.
