american football play 800x480 - The 8 Best Defensive Teams in NCAAF This Year

It’s no denying that offense is a pretty big deal when it comes to college football. However, that’s not all it takes to win a game.

While offense is more interesting to watch, great defense is what wins tournaments. If you look back at the previous seasons, you’ll see that teams that have great defense are actually what pull off a win in the championship matches.

Since you will want to learn which teams are more likely to win this 2019, here are the eight best defensive teams in NCAAF this new season.

Alabama Crimson Tide

Alabama has always had a great defense, but last year they had a surprising downgrade in their total defense.

Despite all that, they still managed to finish 16th nationally in total defense. However, that’s not going to last because they will have good players returning to the team and their defense will get even better next season.

Clemson Tigers

Clemson Tigers’ team of the best defensive players all went to the NFL Draft, so you should expect a lesser defense in their next matches. But they will still be in this list due to their head coach, who has proven to be capable of training and developing players at a high level.

Georgia Bulldogs

While Georgia Bulldogs weren’t able to go inside the top 10 in the nation in total defense, they’re expected to creep up there this 2019. With Kirby Smart as their head coach, they’ll have more and more time to improve in their defense.

Iowa Hawkeyes

Let’s not forget about Hawkeyes where one of the best defensive players lurk – A.J. Epenesa. He racked up 10.5 sacks and he’ll continue with his defensive streak. But there are other players such as Golston who’ll be backing him up in this role.

Miami Hurricanes

Manny Diaz was promoted as the head coach after Mark Richt’s retirement, and it has been going great since then. Some key defensive players returned for this year’s season including Quarterman. Now, Hurricanes are expected to do better than their previous season in terms of defense.

Michigan Wolverines

The Wolverines is also at the hot seats just like the Tigers and they’re having trouble climbing to the top 10 in total defense. This is due to many key losses on their defensive side, but Don Brown is expected to turn things around with some of their integral pieces such as Uche, Metellus, and Ross.

Southern Miss Golden Eagles

Now, this is a real defensive team when it comes to ranking. Golden Eagles were able to pull off their goal of getting inside the top 10 in total defense, they ranked no. 3 even. This is all thanks to their cornerbacks, Hemby and Williams.

Washington Huskies

The Huskies are also getting ready to improve their defensive side with lineman Onwuzurike and linebacker Potoa’e returning. This will surely result in their comeback for the seasons to come.

These are the eight best defensive teams yet. While no one can predict which will come on top, it would be better to bet on them these next seasons rather than depending on pure offensive teams.
