CBS Sports Releases Post-Spring College Football Top 25 Power Rankings

CBS Sports is the latest outlet to release their post-spring college football top 25. 

Dennis Dodd, CBS' national college football writer, has dropped his power rankings heading into the summer. 

There are no real surprises at the top. Dodd has Clemson at No. 1, Alabama at No. 2 and LSU at No. 3. Oklahoma comes in at No. 4 and Michigan, somewhat surprisingly, is No. 5. 

The biggest surprise might be Ohio State's ranking. The Buckeyes sit in the top 10 in most preseason polls, but Dodd has OSU down at No. 18. 

Here's his top 25:
