New, 43 comments

Same ole, same ole as the SEC again tops the AP poll.

Championship trophies

The first AP Preseason Top 25 poll is out, and there really aren’t any surprises here, as Alabama tops the initial release. The only thing that does stick out, quite unlike the Coaches poll, is that Alabama barely received half of all first-place votes (33 of 61).

The SEC leads the field with six teams, the PAC12 fields five, while the ACC and Big 12 each have four.

  1. Alabama (33)
  2. Clemson (16)
  3. Oklahoma (4)
  4. Florida State (5)
  5. LSU (1)
  6. Ohio State (1)
  7. Michigan (1)
  8. Stanford
  9. Tennessee
  10. Notre Dame
  11. Ole Miss
  12. Michigan State
  13. TCU
  14. Washington
  15. Houston
  16. UCLA
  17. Iowa
  18. Georgia
  19. Louisville
  20. USC
  21. Oklahoma State
  22. North Carolina
  23. Baylor
