Below is a breakdown of the 10 players I believe are under the most pressure to perform in college football this season. Granted, football is the ultimate team sport. But there's no denying that certain positions carry a greater burden than others. That's why I'm sure it comes as no surprise that six of the 10 are quarterbacks.

Note: The players are categorized according to their teams' ranking in the AP Top 25 preseason poll.
