Ohio State is at #11, just one vote ahead of California who welcomes in #15 Tennessee this Saturday.  UCLA is at 13, followed by the Georgia Bulldogs.

 

Auburn debuts at #16, becoming the fifth SEC team to be ranked in the preseason poll.  They are followed by Nebraska, Penn State and Rutgers.

 

Rounding out the Top 20 is Arkansas.

 

Last season’s Cinderella story, Boise State, is ranked #21 while Florida State begins the season at #22.  A slim six votes behind the Seminoles is June Jones’ Hawaii Warriors.

 

TCU and the Aggies from Texas A&M close out the rankings.
