19 in coaches preseason poll

19 in coaches preseason poll

The last preseason No. 1 in the coaches poll to win the national championship was USC in 2004.

The Gators open the season against No. 9 MI, which finished last season 10-3 and ranked No. 10 by the coaches, on September 2 in Arlington, Texas. Pitt's Pat Narduzzi and Alabama's Nick Saban are also among the participants.

A lot of familiar names follow the Tide near the top of the rankings.

Alabama was picked No. 1 in the poll, garnering 49 first-place votes.

For the second conecutive season, Alabama will start as the top-ranked team. The voters must realize that though MI did lose a ton of starters, they do have plenty of talent returning that played big roles on the 2016 team, not to mention, one heck of an incoming class of freshman including the "Fab Five 2.0". Southern California wasn't voted first on any ballots but received enough total points to open the campaign ahead of Clemson in the No. 4 spot.




The Big 12 and Atlantic Coast Conference each placed five teams in the poll.

And they will start 2017 in the top 10.

Big Ten clubs Penn State (No. 6), Michigan (No. 9) and Wisconsin (No. 10) are joined by No. 7 Washington and No. 8 Oklahoma in the top 10.

USC's only Pac-12 South foe to make the preseason ranking was Utah at No. 25.

Ohio State opened the year at No. 2 with five first-place votes, slightly edging out third-place Florida State, who will play the top-ranked Tide in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic on September 2 in Atlanta.
