Florida State number one in preseason polls


FSU is number one, football,
FSU National Champs 2013

The preseason polls were released Sunday and Jameis Winston and the defending national champion Florida State rein No.1. This is no surprise as it is very common to have the defending national champions ranked No.1. Florida State will start off the season No.1 for the sixth time and the first time since 1999 when they became the first team in college football history to hold the top spot all year long.

Rounding out the top five is Alabama at No.2, Oregon at No.3, Oklahoma at No.4 and Ohio State at No.5. College football’s runner-up Auburn ranks No. 6 is the preseason polls.

The polls are only a starting point though for college football rankings, as they switch to official rankings midway through the season. The BCS is no longer the official ranking, as college football is now switching to a playoff format where a selection committee will pick the top four teams in the country to advance to the new playoff system.
