Top 10 Projected Scoring offenses headed into the 2023 College Football Season

Publish Date: 07/18/2023

Top offenses

10. Washington Huskies

Michael Penix Jr. had an outstanding season as quarterback of the Huskies. He led the Pac-12 and scored 31 touchdowns while throwing for 4,641 yards, leading their passing offense with 369.8 yards per game while ranking seventh nationally for scoring offense (39.7 points per game).

Now back for another season, he hopes to lead Washington into contention in what promises to be a competitive Pac-12 conference. All of Washington’s top receivers from last season – Rome Odunze and Jalen McMillan- both recorded 1,000-yard seasons last year – return.

9. SMU Mustangs

SMU ranked just outside the top 10 scoring offenses in college football this past season thanks to the connection between quarterback Tanner Mordecai and receiver Rashee Rice. Both players are gone this season, but Steele still likes the Mustangs to take a leap forward in coach Rhett Lashlee‘s second season.

SMU will turn to former four-star recruit Preston Stone at quarterback. They also bring in a pair of highly touted transfers in TCU receiver Jordan Hudson andMiami running back Jaylan Knighton, which should make things interesting.

8. Utah Utes

Cameron Rising returns after leading Utah to back-to-back Pac-12 Championships at quarterback, throwing for 3,034 yards, 26 touchdowns and eight interceptions during 2022. In addition to throwing the ball, he also proved his dual-threat capabilities by running 465 yards for six scores.

Utah also returns running back Ja’Quinden Jackson, who led the team with nine rushing touchdowns on 6.8 yards per carry and 6 touchdowns overall in 2022. However, replacing Dalton Kincaid as its leading receiver will prove challenging.

7. Florida State Seminoles

Coming off a 10-3 campaign, the Florida State Seminoles are drawing plenty of buzz as potential College Football Playoff contenders in 2023. Starting quarterback Jordan Travis returns along with leading receiver Johnny Wilson and leading rusher Trey Benson.

I think that FSU can take advantage of its experience to increase its 36.1 points per game this past season – 16th best among major U.S. colleges, last year.

6. Oregon Ducks

Bo Nix led Oregon to rank among the top 10 scoring offenses in college football this past season (38.8 ppg) after transferring from Auburn. Bo had his best season yet as he amassed 3,593 yards, 29 touchdowns, and seven interceptions while leading Oregon to a 10-3 record.

Nix will receive additional protection this year thanks to Oregon’s addition of offensive tackle Ajani Cornelius, who ranks No. 8 in the Transfer Portal Rankings. Bucky Irving returned after amassing 1,058 yards and five touchdowns last season – providing additional balance to their offense.

5. Tennessee Volunteers

Tennessee enters this season with many uncertainties after the departures of quarterback Hendon Hooker and leading receiver Jalin Hyatt. Joe Milton will be his replacement; Vols fans hope his strong performance at the Orange Bowl will carry over to 2023. Tennessee returns its top two rushers Jaylen Wright and Jabari Small, while Heupel teams have always proven to be an offensive threat.

4. Ohio State Buckeyes

Ohio State has consistently been one of the top five scoring offenses in college football since coach Ryan Day took over five seasons ago, thanks to its talented receiving corps and dynamic backfield duo of Miyan Williams and TreVeyon Henderson, I think this will be one of the best offenses in the nation.

Ohio State will welcome back receivers Marvin Harrison Jr. and Emeka Egbuka, who recorded 1,000-yard seasons in 2022. Kyle McCord – Harrison’s high school teammate who received five-star recruiting consideration – appears as their preferred replacement quarterback for CJ Stroud at quarterback.

3. Michigan Wolverines

Under Blake Corum and Donovan Edwards’ backfield duo in 2022, Michigan finished first in the Big Ten Conference and fifth overall with 238.9 rushing yards per game. These players will also return for 2023 to help give Michigan one of the most potent ground attacks nationwide.

QB JJ McCarthy returns and poses a threat with both legs and his arm after rushing for 306 yards and five touchdowns in 2022. If he can improve as a passer this season, look out for Michigan in their efforts to return to the College Football Playoff.

2. Georgia Bulldogs

Despite losing starting quarterback Stetson Bennett and leading rusher Kenny McIntosh this season, although much attention was placed on their defense to win back-to-back national titles, people tend to forget that GGeorgia averaged over 40 points a game last year.

Georgia returns their top two receivers – Ladd McConkey and Brock Bowers (63 catches for 942 yards and three touchdowns), providing Carson Beck – who could replace Bennett – with plenty of weapons as the team goes for another championship three-peat.

1. USC Trojans

Caleb Williams will remain one of the elite quarterbacks for USC thanks to his return as Heisman winner and projected No.1 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Last season he threw for 4,537 yards, 42 touchdowns and only five interceptions as USC finished third nationally with 41.4 points per game.

Jordan Addison is gone to the NFL, but  Tahj Washington, Mario Williams and Brenden Rice remain his top receivers from last season. Arizona transfer Dorian Singer recently posted an impressive 1,000-yard season at Arizona before coming over.
