12. LSU

Les Miles has won 11 or more games in five of his eight seasons at LSU, and it could have been six of eight had the Tigers not unraveled in the fourth quarter of the Chick-fil-A Bowl last season. With 10 underclassmen lost to the NFL draft, including six starters on defense, Miles will be counting on a lot of new faces in 2013. Zach Mettenberger returns for his senior season at quarterback, and Miles vows the Tigers will be more effective throwing the ball under new offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, who's spent the past 11 years in the NFL calling plays. Running back Jeremy Hill was just reinstated from suspension, but the Tigers still need to find another pass-rusher or two on defense. -- Chris Low
