3 in Preseason AP Poll

3 in Preseason AP Poll

The end of summer brings about the release of the annual Associated Press college football Top 25.

The Seminoles and Crimson Tide, who are the first program in 12 years to take the top spot two years in a row, will meet at 8 p.m. September 2 inside the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta - just the fourth opener involving top-five teams and the first pitting teams ranked in the preseason top three. TCU is the top team among those receiving votes with 98 points.

So, while the Buckeyes came in ahead of the Seminoles in the top 25, FSU actually received more first-place votes.

Alabama was an overwhelming choice for No. 1 and led a list of six Southeastern Conference teams in the poll.

Alabama also was No. 1 in the preseason coaches' poll.

Washington State, Boise State's opponent in week two, checked in at No. 24 in the preseason AP poll.

USC starts the season at No. 4.

With less than two weeks remaining until a showdown between Florida State and Alabama in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game, it can officially be stated: This is the best opening-weekend game in college football history. The reigning national champion Tigers are still in the top five despite losing key players, such as Deshaun Watson.

Fellow Big 12ers Kansas State (No. 20), West Virginia (No. 22) and Texas (No. 23) made the cut as well. Despite the Longhorns having a bad year in 2016 (losing to KU was the cherry on top of that cake), they always get national appeal simply because they're the Texas Longhorns.

Florida State opens the season with a top-three showdown against Alabama while Clemson opens against Kent State before high-profile matchups against Auburn and Louisville.
