FSU Ranked Third In Preseason AP Poll

Coach Nick Saban talks about the eclipse

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.

Southern California, which received two first-place votes, is No. 4.

Starting the season ranked in the top 20 is familiar territory for the Georgia football team the past five years. The AP analyzed the last 10 seasons of polls (2007-16), comparing the preseason rankings with the final Top 25.

UGA is also ranked 15th in the Amway Coaches Poll that was released on August 3.

The Tigers begin their first season under coach Ed Orgeron on September 2 against BYU in Houston.

Matt Canavan , Australia's resources minister, resigned his senate seat after it emerged he also had Italian citizenship. That did not stop the prime minister and Ms Bishop ramping up their attack on Mr Shorten.

Other Big 12 programs joining the Wildcats in the 2017 Preseason AP Top 25 were Oklahoma (7th), Oklahoma State (10th), West Virginia (22nd) and Texas (23rd).

The Associated Press began its college football poll on October 19, 1936, and it is now the longest-running poll of those that award national titles at the end of the season. The sixth-ranked Nittany Lions beat Wisconsin to win the Big Ten Conference last season, and the seventh-ranked Huskies represented the Pacific 12 Conference in last season's playoff.

- No. 6 Penn State has its best preseason ranking since it was No. 3 in 1999. SEC East rivals Georgia (No. 15) and Florida (No. 17) follow and Tennessee is No. 25. MI 12. Auburn 13.

Miami is ranked just behind Florida at No. 18.

- 8.0 teams (80 percent total) that started the season ranked in the top 10 finished the season in the Top 25.
