Notre Dame ranked No. 9 in preseason Amway Coaches Poll

SEC foe Georgia slots in at No. 3 with 2018 Big 12 champion Oklahoma and 2018 Big Ten champion Ohio State rounding out the top five. LSU sits sixth, while Michigan, Florida, Notre Dame and Texas round out the Top 10.

For the first time in 15 years, WSU will open the season ranked in the Coaches Poll and the Cougars' initial ranking of No. 21 marks the program's highest since 2002, when a team led by quarterback Jason Gesser opened the year ranked No. 14.


The Seminoles began last season ranked No. 19 in the poll under then first-year head coach Willie Taggart.

Clemson received 59 first-place votes while the Crimson Tide received the other six. Clemson and Alabama have alternated winning the last four championships. The Utes haven't been ranked in that poll in August in their Pac-12 era, but are expected to land in the same range as in the Coaches Poll. It's the first time since 2016 the conference has placed at least five teams in the annual preseason poll.


The preseason college football poll ranks Michigan at #7 and to many people's surprise Michigan State at #20. Highlighting this group is junior QB Jordan Love, who was voted the MW's Preseason Offensive Player of the Year, while senior DE Tipa Galeai, senior CB DJ Williams, junior KR Savon Scarver and junior LB David Woodward were also named to the 25-man team.
