Here's how we think the preseason top 25 will shake out in just a month.
With basketball season finished, it's time to turn our attention to the upcoming football campaign. In just over a month, we'll get to see preseason rankings for both the AP Poll and the Coaches' Poll.
Which team will be No. 1 before the season starts? Will it be Clemson, the defending national champions? Or maybe Alabama or Ohio State - the two squads that lost to the Tigers in last year's College Football Playoff?
Here's how we think the top 25 will shake out in early August. To be clear - these aren't our rankings - they're what we think the polls will look like.
- Ohio State
- Florida State
- Penn State
- Oklahoma State
- Kansas State
- West Virginia
- Washington State
- Virginia Tech
The Coaches' Poll should be available in the first week of August. The AP Poll usually follows a week or two later. We can't wait for the 2017 season to kick off.
