Alabama leads the AP Top 25 Poll with 10 national titles, followed closely by Notre Dame with 8 and Oklahoma at 7, with Miami and Southern California at 5. For the first time since 1975, Ohio State, Michigan and Michigan State are ranked in the Top 15 of the preseason AP Top 25 Poll.

The Associated Press began its college football poll on October 19, 1936 and it is now the longest-running survey of those that award national titles at the end of the season.

The preseason weekly poll was started in 1950 and is comprised of a panel of 61 sports writers and broadcasters nationwide. All participants have an extensive background in covering college football.

POLL METHODOLOGY

The AP Top 25 is determined by a simple points system based on how each voter ranks college football’s best teams. A team receives 25 points for each first place vote, 24 for second place and so on through to the 25th team, which receives one point. The rankings are set by listing the teams’ point totals from highest to lowest. The mathematical formula is the same as the one used for the AP Pro 32 rankings and the AP Top 25 rankings for men’s and women’s basketball.
