College football countdown

It's not time to get into the good teams just yet, but many of these programs have interesting subplots nonetheless.

100. Troy. The Trojans were an absolute anachronism last year: A major-college program that didn't go to a bowl game despite owning a winning record. Bumped from the New Orleans Bowl with a season-ending loss to Florida Atlantic, Troy was the only team with seven-plus wins not to play in the postseason.

Instead, the highlight of the season was a 41-23 rout of visiting Oklahoma State that wasn't remotely that close. That, in turn, led to one of the nation's top moments last year --- Cowboys coach Mike Gundy's famous rant about a column based partially on quarterback Bobby Reid's actions after that loss.

The Sun Belt secured some backup bowl tie-ins in case other conferences can't fill their postseason allotments. That should help the Trojans, who will again be atop the league with Florida Atlantic.
