AUBURN, Alabama -- The preseason previews began a little while, and more will trickle in as the summer keeps advancing toward the start of college football next season.

Auburn, already ranked No. 5 by both Phil Steele and the Sporting News, checks in again at No. 5 in the Athlon Sports Preview, which was released today by the magazine.

Tigers quarterback Nick Marshall, who already graces regional covers for both the Sporting News and Lindy's, has also been placed on a regional cover for Athlon as the second-year quarterback returns to run Auburn's offense.

The full in-depth preview will be available when magazines hit newsstands around Memorial Day.

Athlon is rolling out its top 25 over the course of this week, although the magazine hasn't released its top four teams ahead of the Tigers so far. With Alabama almost a certainty to be on that list, Auburn faces six teams in 2014 who earned mention on Athlon's preseason top 25: Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Ole Miss, LSU and Kansas State.

The rest of the top 25, as released by Athlon so far:

5. Auburn

6. Oregon


8. Georgia

9. South Carolina

10. Baylor

11. Michigan State

12. Stanford
