In just three weeks, we’ll see the return of the college football season. After last year’s season that was abbreviated due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we should be back to normal this season. When analyzing schedules, the 10-win mark is one that teams want to get to. In looking at this year’s slate of games, we see quite a few teams that we think can get to that mark. Let’s take a look at some of the teams that we think will get to 10 wins, and may even eclipse that mark so you can wager against their NCAAF odds.
College Football | Which Teams Can Reach The 10 Win Mark?
Alabama Crimson Tide
Alabama has a tough opener against Miami. They also go to College Station to play Texas A&M, and they end the year with the Iron Bowl at Auburn. Those look like the only games that could give the Crimson Tide some issues. We don’t see them losing more than one game this season.
The ACC is Clemson’s to lose. Other than North Carolina, we don’t see anyone in the conference challenging Dabo Swinney’s squad. Their toughest game of the season will be in their opener against SEC powerhouse Georgia.
The Bearcats should dominate the AAC this season. They return much of last year’s squad that challenged for a playoff spot. The Bearcats will be out to prove that they’re worthy of one of the four playoff spots even though they’re not in a Power 5 conference. They do have a trip to South Bend that could be a stumbling block, but other than that game, we don’t see Cincinnati having much trouble with their schedule.
Ohio State Buckeyes
The Big 10 is set up for Ohio State to take the title this season. Their toughest game of the conference season will be their rivalry game with the Michigan Wolverines at the end of the year. They do have a huge non-conference game on September 11th with the Oregon Ducks. This one will be tough, but it will be played at Columbus, so that gives a nice advantage to the Buckeyes.
Now that their defense has improved, and they know that they underperformed last season, the Sooners will be looking to dominate the Big 12. They have Texas in the Red River Rivalry game, and they also have a huge clash with the Iowa State Cyclones. Lincoln Riley will once again have a powerful offense, and Alex Grinch has steadily improved the Oklahoma defense. If they can just slow teams down, it will be a huge help for the Sooners. We could see this squad going undefeated this season.
Coastal Carolina Chanticleers
Coastal Carolina made their mark last season. They were a relatively unknown program heading into the season, but by the end of the year, everyone knew who they were. They have a good chunk of last year’s team returning, and they have a very favorable schedule. The only Power 5 school on their schedule is Kansas, and Kansas is a very poor program at this time. We could see Coastal Carolina going undefeated this season and throwing a wrench into the playoff system.
