With college football's preseason AP Top-25 officially out,

Brad Crawford of 247Sports took some time to project the teams entering the 2022 season.

Taking each team's average survey ranking, the CFB analyst narrowed down the five teams specifically that people could see.

According to Crawford, Arkansas, Iowa, Penn State, Michigan and Tennessee are programs that should be looked at.

Arguably his lowest team, Iowa, Crawford wrote:

Another off-season of disrespect for the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Look, none of the opposing teams in the Big Ten fear this crime,

But with most defense backs ranked in the top 10 of multiple categories nationally last season after winning the Western Division,

Shouldn't Kirk Ferentz's team get more love as one of the best 25 teams in the country?

For the most part, Iowa succeeds in outside expectations and is often undervalued at this time of year.

This has been proven time and again. Nine starts return from a defense that had accumulated 25 interceptions last time.

One of those top stalwarts is Jack Campbell, who has a chance to lead college football in total tackles if he remains healthy.

Riley Moss is also back after earning Big Ten defensive back of the year honors, missing a quarter of the season despite being injured.

Defensive coordinator Phil Parker has to look at this roster and smile in the opener with the underrated label.

Who do you think the teams should be watching for this fall?
