Georgia Tops Preseason AP Top 25

For the first time ever, the Georgia Bulldogs begin the year ranked atop the AP's Top 25 college football poll.
The Bulldogs return 16 starters to a team that finished last season second in the rankings. They collected 22 of the 65 first-place votes in the poll. Second-ranked Ohio State had 21 first-place votes. Southern Cal Oklahoma, and Florida round out the top five. Each of those schools had at least four first-place votes.
Defending national champion L-S-U starts the year ranked seventh, just behind Missouri. West Virginia, Clemson and Auburn finish out the top 10.
Six of the top 25 schools play in the SEC and a seventh, South Carolina, missed the top 25 by just a point.
