The 2018 college football season is just a day away. That's right, there's college football action this Saturday.

Rejoice, it's back. With the return of college football come the preseason polls. Both the AP and Coaches released their polls ahead of the upcoming season - the No. 1 team in both polls should be no surprise.

Alabama sits at No. 1 in both with Clemson sitting closely behind.
