Overview: CBS is in its third year. Last year, CBS finished 12th out of 13 magazines for prediction accuracy. My preference is to use 3-year or 5-year accuracy totals, but this magazine doesn't yet have that sort of history. The text is not incredibly detailed -- the magazine has a lower page-count than most of the competition -- but presents good information and does account for the results of spring football.

Per-team information: One page of information for all 119 I-A teams. Most of the text is a discussion of offensive and defensive prospects for the coming year. There's a one-deep projected roster, previous year's results, and the current year's schedule.

Per-conference information: One page per conference, consisting of a predicted order of finish with one paragraph of commentary per team, an all-conference team, and projected awards (offensive/defensive MVP, coach of the year, top newcomer).

National information: A two-deep All-America team and all 119 I-A teams ranked (without comment).

Recap (previous year's) information: All previous year's game results on each team's page. Some team and individual statistical leaders.

Division I-AA information: None.
