This year's preseason AP poll is set to be released, as the Top 25 will become public on Sunday afternoon. However, that isn't stopping some of the voters from releasing who they voted for, as ESPN's Brett McMurphy released his vote on Friday morning.
In list form, here is what McMurphy's vote looks like:
2. Florida State
7. Ohio State
8. Notre Dame
11. Ole Miss
13. North Carolina
18. Oklahoma State
19. Michigan State
23. San Diego State
There are a couple of interesting things at the top of that list, mostly Stanford breaking into the Top 6 over the top ranked Big Ten team and Notre Dame. The Pac-12 has been getting excluded a lot from College Football Playoff predictions, so it will probably make the west coast fans happy that they have Stanford, and Washington at No. 9, are both highly ranked.

Other interesting teams of note from McMurphy's poll: Michigan, Michigan State, and Georgia all seem a couple of spots too low. And the inclusions of San Diego State, Miami, and Texas in the poll at all are very interesting.
Notably missing from McMurphy's poll are Iowa and Florida. The Hawkeyes may get love elsewhere, though, and they are No. 15 in the preseason Coaches Poll.
