Predicting When Each Top 10 Team Will Suffer Its 1st Loss Of The Season

With the season ramping up and conference play beginning, we’ve decided to predict when each top 10 team will be suffering their first loss of the season. One of these games is occurring this weekend. The others are almost all road contests. 

Here are our predictions.

We’ve seen these T-shirts before. They’re popping up in Nike stores across the country. And a majority of these teams typically wear an alternate jersey at some point during the season. It is pretty surprising to see teams like Alabama and Texas on this list, though. 

Nike and the schools, unsurprisingly, have yet to comment on the idea of these being worn as jerseys.
