ESPN Analyst Reveals His No. 1 Team For 2018

Here's his preseason No. 1 for 2018.

It's preseason top 25 time in the college football world. The 2017 season is long gone, spring football is a ways away...all there is to do is talk about the 2018 season.

Who do you like at No. 1 for next season? Alabama? Clemson? Georgia? Ohio State.

The Crimson Tide are coming in at No. 1 in most of the preseason top 25 polls. Alabama loses a lot, but the reigning national champions bring back a ton of young talent on offense.

Alabama will likely be led by sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who took over for Jalen Hurts at halftime. Star freshmen running back Najee Harris will be back, too.

A couple of ESPN analysts have released their early preseason rankings. They differ on the preseason No. 1s.

ESPN's Dari Nowkhah and Mel Kiper both released their preseason top 6s. One has Georgia at No. 1, the other has Clemson.

Here are the full top 6s:

Kiper is probably higher on Washington and Michigan than most. Nowkhah, meanwhile, went with a more standard top six.
