The AP Poll is officially out and ready for viewing consumption. The Crimson Tide are of course atop the list yet again after returning a good amount of the team that narrowly lost to Clemson in the National Championship back in January.

The surprises on this list come after Alabama though as USC was given the No. 4 spot rather than the second or third slot where a lot of people thought they would end up. Florida State at three also means we won’t get our historic 1 vs 2 matchup in the first week of the season like everyone was hoping for. Clemson also got a favorable spot in the top-five despite losing a ton of talent on offense.

Here is the list in its entirety:

  1. Alabama
  2. Ohio State
  3. Florida State
  4. USC
  5. Clemson
  6. Penn State
  7. Oklahoma
  8. Washington
  9. Wisconsin
  10. Oklahoma State
  11. Michigan
  12. Auburn
  13. LSU
  14. Stanford
  15. Georgia
  16. Louisville
  17. Florida
  18. Miami
  19. USF
  20. Kansas State
  21. Virginia Tech
  22. West Virginia
  23. Texas
  24. Washington State
  25. Tennessee
