By Jon Wilner | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: January 7, 2019 at 10:21 pm | UPDATED: January 8, 2019 at 10:50 pm The 2018 season ended emphatically on two levels. Clemson dominated Alabama, and Clemson and Alabama dominated the field — the best teams in the land, by far. Will that change in 2019?

Here's the USA TODAY Sports preview of what's ahead for college football in the fall. 1. Alabama The Crimson Tide will have a Heisman Trophy favorite in quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, an outstanding collection of skill players and enough returning talent to overcome what should be another exodus of starters to the NFL. There's no reason why Alabama can't be the nation's most … [Read more...] about 2019 College football Top 25: Alabama, Clemson atop rankings
