The Associated Press preseason Top 25 poll has been released. The AP's preseason top 25 poll is one of two preseason polls. The Coaches' Poll was released earlier this month.

There are not too many surprises at the top of the poll. Alabama, which came in at No. 1 in the preseason Coaches' Poll, are also on top of the preseason AP poll.

Alabama was one of three teams to get at least one first-place vote (the Crimson Tide obviously got a lot more than just one).

Clemson received 18 first-place votes and, somewhat surprisingly, Wisconsin received one.

Here's the full poll, from the AP.
