Brett McMurphy speaking back when he worked at ESPN.

College football preseason polls are trickling out as the season is less than two weeks away. The preseason Coaches’ Poll is already out, and the Associated Press' version will be unveiled on Monday.

Today, AP voter Brett McMurphy revealed his personal ballot. McMurphy has been making big headlines this summer for his Urban Meyer reporting, but he found time to cast his vote.

McMurphy has Alabama at No. 1, which isn't a surprise. His full top 10 is as follows:

  1. Alabama
  2. Clemson
  3. Wisconsin
  4. Washington
  5. Ohio State
  6. Georgia
  7. Oklahoma
  8. Stanford
  9. Michigan State
  10. Penn State

McMurphy's full ballot can be seen below.

Boston College at No. 20 is probably the most interesting part of McMurphy's ballot. Also, with Miami, Florida and Florida State all ranked in close proximity, fans of those schools could have some fun with his rankings.

Check back on Monday afternoon for the AP's official preseason Top 25.
