College football season grades for all 130 teams led by LSU, Clemson

USA TODAY Sports spent the 2019 college football season taking careful notes on all 130 teams in the Bowl Subdivision. With the year complete, let’s hand out some grades.

It’s time for report cards for the FBS, with marks ranging from the ultra-rare A+ to the utter failure that is an F grade. Three teams earned an F, including SEC cellar-dweller Arkansas. Four earned an A+, including LSU and Baylor.

Keep in mind that all report cards are graded on a relative curve. Take Minnesota and Alabama, for example. Both teams finished 11-2 with strong bowl wins, with the Golden Gophers beating Auburn and the Crimson Tide topping Michigan.

Minnesota running back Mohamed Ibrahim breaks free for a touchdown against Auburn during the first half of the 2020 Citrus Bowl at Raymond James Stadium.

But Minnesota draws an A+ after winning a combined 12 games across the previous two seasons while Alabama was given a B after falling short of an SEC West championship and New Year’s Six bowl berth. (The expectations at Alabama are immense.)
