The Kansas City Star

•  1. Texas A&M: Big asterisk here. Aggies fall to near bottom if Johnny Manziel is ineligible.

•  2. Georgia: Aaron Murray looking to prove he can win the big game.

•  3. Alabama: AJ McCarron can go where no QB has gone, three straight titles.

•  4. South Carolina: Conner Shaw will start, and Steve Spurrier will find ways to get Dylan Thompson in game.

•  5. Mississippi: Bo Wallace passed for nearly 3,000 yards last season. Should be even better this year.

•  6. Florida: Jeff Driskel emerged from battle last year to turn in solid season.

•  7. Mississippi State: Tyler Russell, a fifth-year senior, set several school records in 2012.

•  8. Missouri: James Franklin, injured much of last year, looks to regain his sophomore form.

•  9. LSU: Zach Mettenberger, the Georgia transfer, gets a shot at the Bulldogs on Sept. 28.

•  10. Arkansas: Good things expected from homegrown talent Brandon Allen.

•  11. Auburn: Nick Marshall becomes seventh different starting quarterback in seven years at Auburn.

•  12. Vanderbilt: Wyoming transfer Austyn Carta-Samuels started once last season. Now he’s the guy.

•  13. Tennessee: New coach Butch Jones didn’t name a starter among three candidates well into fall camp.

•  14. Kentucky: Three vie for the job in Mark Stoops’ first season.
