Top teams survive final preseason poll shakeup
This is our fourth preseason football poll at Rivals.com, and this one is for keeps.
We gave you a poll after the bowl season. We rallied for another look after Signing Day, and yet another top 25 just prior to fall practice.
Now it's time to get down to serious business. We've seen how things have played out in the last month. We know who the new starters are. We have a grasp on which freshmen will contribute immediately. We know which teams have been beset by injuries, and we know which quarterbacks are no longer on campus.
All of that means a few shakeups since our last poll. But still nothing has changed at the top. Rivals.com's panelists are sticking by what they projected in January – No. 1 Ohio State and No. 2 Notre Dame meeting for the national championship.
Also receiving votes: TCU, Tennessee, Utah, Boston College, Fresno State.
