25. North Carolina State
NC State finished the 2020 season 8–4. The Wolfpack return the large majority of the team’s starters, including quarterback Devin Leary. Leary only played four games due to a foot injury but after what he showcased, expectations are high for him coming into 2021.
NC State will have one of their best rosters in a while next season and could hang around in the top 25 for most if not all of the season.
