ESPN FPI: Auburn Is Most-Underrated Team In AP Preseason Top 25

Here’s the most-underrated team in the preseason AP Poll.

Auburn came in at No. 12 in the preseason AP Poll top 25, which was released earlier this afternoon.

The Tigers are underrated, says ESPN’s computer.

Auburn is the most-underrated team in the AP Poll, according to the Worldwide Leader’s Football Power Index.

According to the FPI, Auburn is actually the fifth-best team in college football heading into the fall, which is seven spots higher than AU is ranked in the preseason AP Poll.

The FPI has Tennessee ranked 19th while the AP has the Vols 25th. TCU comes in ranked 18th in the FPI, while they are technically 26th ( the top 'other' team receiving votes) in the AP Poll.

Oregon, Notre Dame, UCLA and NC State are all in the FPI Top 25 but are outside the AP's version.
