It is safe to say that disrespect of the Boston College Eagles has become a rite of summer in preseason publications. So when I opened up Phil Steele’s yearly college football publication (it is like a bible for college football fans), and saw his Top 25, I was stunned. Without further delay, here it is.

1. Alabama
2. Clemson
3. Ohio State
4. Washington
5. Georgia
6. Wisconsin
7. Miami
8. Notre Dame
9. Oklahoma
10. Texas
11. Michigan
12. Penn State
13. Michigan State
14. Boise State
15. Stanford
16. USC
17. Florida
18. Florida State
19. Auburn
20. TCU
21. Mississippi State
22. Utah
23. BOSTON COLLEGE
24. Oregon
25. Arkansas State

This is major praise for the Eagles, Phil Steele spends countless hours pouring over research when he comes up with lists like this, and has been shown to be incredibly accurate time and time again. I know preseason polls are meaningless, and you have to play the actual games, but it’s hard to not get excited for the upcoming season when guys like Steele are so high on BC.
