The Associated Press preseason poll – like the Coaches’ Poll before it – has ranked Alabama as the preseason No.1 team in the country, to no-one’s great surprise.

The Tide had 58 of 60 possible first place votes, with the others going to Ohio State and Georgia.

No.2 is Ohio State, No.3 is Oregon, which climbs above Pac-12 neighbour Stanford, which is 4th. Georgia is 5th. South Carolina is 6th, and Texas A&M is 7th – with voters obviously worrying a little about whether Johnny Manziel might play for the Aggies after ‘Autographgate’. Georgia’s opponents on Opening Day, Clemson, is 8th, while Louisville and Florida round out the Top 10.

A rebuilding LSU comes in 12th behind Florida State – which shows that the AP really does seem to trust in Les Miles, Cam Cameron and John Chavis, while Oklahoma, Notre Dame and Texas complete the Top 15.

Oklahoma, Michigan, Nebraska, Boise State, TCU, UCLA, Northwestern, Wisconsin, USC and Oregon State complete the rest of the Top 25.

Here’s are the standings 1-25:
