AP Poll: College Football Preseason Top 25 Rankings







The AP poll has been released for the 2018 college football season. While there are a few surprises in the rankings, it’s not a surprise that Alabama, Clemson and Georgia led the way as the top college football teams.

The Alabama Crimson Tide start the season as the top-ranked team in the country after winning the National Championship last season. Clemson comes in at number two and Georgia is third after nearly winning last year. What might be a surprise is that Wisconsin is 4th and one of 3 teams to receive a first place vote. Ohio State comes in at fifth amid the Urban Meyer scandal.

The Big Ten and SEC and Big 12 have 5 teams ranked, with all five Big Ten teams ranking in the Top 15. Oregon sneaked into the Top 25 after being left out in the coaches poll. South Carolina, Florida Utah are the top teams receiving votes.
