College football's preseason top 25 poll was released on Monday afternoon, with the Associated Press unveiling its rankings.

The Associated Press' preseason top 10 is as follows:

  1. Clemson
  2. Alabama
  3. Georgia
  4. Oklahoma
  5. Ohio State
  6. LSU
  7. Michigan
  8. Florida
  9. Notre Dame
  10. Texas

College football's national champion will probably come from that group, so that group will also surely lose plenty of games.

According to ESPN's Football Power Index, here are the most-likely losses for each team:

1. Clemson: at South Carolina on Nov. 30, 14.9 percent chance at loss

As you've seen above, Clemson, Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma and Michigan are all favored to win every game they play. It'd be shocking if the college football season works out that way, though.
