Seeing the Cincinnati Bearcats at number 4 on a preseason top 25 must seem like a typo but I can assure you, it is not. Cincy is coming off one of their best seasons in school history, in which they went undefeated in the regular season before dropping their bowl game to Georgia on a series of heartbreaking and jaw-dropping sequences.
Even with the loss, Cincy QB Desmond Ridder was unbelievable and showed ridiculous potential. Ridder is my pick to be the first quarterback off the board in next year’s draft. If he plays to his ability, Cincy can be the first non-power 5 school to break into the CFP.
