AP Preseason Poll Released: Alabama On Top, Boise State Third

The first AP Top 25 of 2010 has been released. Defending national champion Alabama takes the top spot, followed by Ohio State, Boise State, Florida, and Texas.

It's the highest-ever ranking for Boise State, which also received a first-place vote. It's a great position for Boise State to be in: After their season-opening game against Virginia Tech, the Broncos' schedule isn't particularly challenging, and they could easily be playing for a BCS title should Alabama or Ohio State slip even once.

The full top 25, with the number of first-place votes in parentheses:

  1. Alabama (54)
  2. Ohio State (3)
  3. Boise State (1)
  4. Florida
  5. Texas (1)
  6. TCU
  7. Oklahoma (1)
  8. Nebraska
  9. Iowa
  10. Virginia Tech
  11. Oregon
  12. Wisconsin
  13. Miami
