Boise State is top Group of 5 team

Editor's note: Phil Steele's college football preview magazine is available here.

Here is my outlook for the top 10 Group of 5 teams in 2015:

1. Boise State Broncos
It concerns me that the Broncos have a young quarterback (Ryan Finley) and two tough early road games (BYU and Virginia). Still, with 17 returning starters, this team looks even stronger than the 2014 team that won the Fiesta Bowl and finished No. 16 in the country. Boise State's defense has the potential to be dominant. The Broncos have my No. 1-rated defensive line, No. 1 linebackers and No. 2 defensive backs in the Mountain West.
