The preseason college football USA Today Coaches Poll is out, and Alabama is the clear No. 1.
The Crimson Tide got 58 of 62 possible first-place votes. Ohio State (No. 2) got three first-place votes and Texas A&M (No. 6) got one.
Here’s the top 25 broken down by conference: SEC (6), Pac-12 (5), Big 10 (5), Big 12 (4), ACC (2), plus Louisville, Boise State and Notre Dame.
No huge surprises. USC and Texas are a bit lower than anticipated, and Notre Dame is a bit higher considering they’ve lost their quarterback.
Here’s the full poll:
- Ohio State
- Texas A&M
- South Carolina
- Notre Dame
- Florida State
- Oklahoma State
