Minnesota produced seven posters, one for each home game. It's part of the Golden Gophers' "Brick by Brick" campaign highlighting coach Jerry Kill's philosophy, and the team backed it up with a dedicated website.
Minnesota plays host to Texas Christian on Sept. 3.
Texas Tech might be rethinking its hiring of Kliff Kingsbury, who won his first seven games but has gone only 5-13 since. That said, it's always a concern when your center is featured on a poster schedule. A difficult three-game stretch begins Sept. 19 at Arkansas, followed by games against Texas Christian and Baylor.
Kentucky crumbled down the stretch, losing its last six games to finish 5-7. Mark Stoops is said to be bringing in quality recruits, but eventually there has to be results on the field. It's a key season for the Wildcats, and in order to keep the momentum rolling, they have to breakthrough and play in the postseason.
It has been a long, hard fall for Florida since the Urban Meyer days. Will Muschamp stepped down after going 28-21 in four seasons as coach and Jim McElwain was brought in from Colorado State. His first game is Sept. 5 against New Mexico State. The Gators have not played an out-of-state nonconference game since losing to Syracuse, 38-21, on Sept. 21, 1991.
Penn State's early schedule is cushy, and the Nittany Lions could be undefeated entering the Oct. 17 game at Ohio State. There's also the Nov. 28 regular-season finale at Michigan State. The rest of the schedule is manageable and the team should win a bundle of games.
Georgia Tech rolled out posters featuring five players. The Yellow Jackets are coming off an 11-3 season that included a 37-35 loss to Florida State in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game and a dominating 49-34 victory over Mississippi State in the Orange Bowl. Georgia Tech plays at Notre Dame on Sept. 19.
