A quick look at the final college football regular season poll.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The 2014 college football regular season is officially in the books.  The season had many, many peaks and valleys, but overall it proved to be a very entertaining season.

Due to there being no games coming up, only the final regular season poll is featured, as well as underrated/overrated.  I’ll get into my matchups and upset alert in a separate bowl preview.

Overrated

#11 Kansas State.  The Wildcats had a very good season, but the teams directly behind them (Georgia Tech, UGA, UCLA) all would beat Kansas State in my opinion.  Luckily, we’ll get to see them square off against UCLA in the Alamo Bowl on January 2nd.

Underrated

#5 Baylor.  I would have put the Bears in the CFB Playoff ahead of Ohio State.  They had a better loss, as well as the most impressive win between the two teams as well.  Baylor will have to beef up their out of conference schedule in the coming years so this situation won’t happen again.
