Alabama comes in at #2 in the AP's Preseason Top 25, sandwiched between USC and LSU. The Tide had 17 first place votes, with USC getting 25, LSU 16, and #4 Oklahoma and #8 Michigan each getting one first place vote. The SEC has five teams in the Top Ten (#2 Alabama, #3 LSU, #6 UGA, #9 South Carolina, and #10 Arkansas). With Arkansas at #10, that means our beloved Tide will take on two different Top Ten teams on the road in September. Full poll at the link above.
