AP Preseason Poll 2017: Complete College Football Rankings Released

2017 College Football preseason AP Poll

This is only the third time since 2004 that K-State has earned a spot in the inaugural AP top 25.

This is the best four-year span for Auburn, which is No. 13 in the preseason coaches poll, in the preseason AP poll since an eight-year span in the top 15 from 1983-90. And that includes on Twitter, where fans and experts alike shared their opinions on where the teams placed, or didn't place.

Being able to finish anywhere in the Associated Press poll on the other hand has proved elusive for the Bulldogs the last two seasons.

Since 2001, the Sooners have now been ranked in the AP top 10 for 15 of 17 seasons.

That game, of course, will happen in Atlanta, where the Alabama Crimson Tide will face off against the Florida State Seminoles in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game.

Kansas State will enter the football season as a ranked team for the first time since 2014.

Meanwhile, Ohio State - which is ranked second - is making its 29th consecutive appearance in the preseason poll.

It is also OU's highest preseason ranking under a first-year coach since beginning at No. 2 under Gomer Jones in the 1964 season. Tennessee will start the season, he 5th for Butch Jones on the UT sideline, ranked 25th.

K-State finished last season on a hot streak, winning six of its last seven games to end the year with a 9-4 record.

With Miami at No. 18 and South Florida at No. 19, the state of Florida has four teams ranked in the preseason poll for the first time. MI 12. Auburn 13.
