I’ll save you the scrolling and the suspense. If you’re looking for Penn State, you won’t find the Nittany Lions in this year’s AP Pre-Season Top 25.
Oklahoma gets the nod for #1, followed by Alabama, Oregon, LSU, and Boise State in the top five.
Rounding out the top ten are FSU, Stanford, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, and Nebraska.
After winning it all last year, Auburn sinks to #23.
The Big Ten placed four teams in the rankings with Wisconsin (#11), Michigan State (#17) and Ohio St. (#18) joining Nebraska. The Nittany Lions play three of those four teams.
The SEC was the top conference, with eight teams in the top 25.
