Unsurprisingly, Alabama tops out the AP Top 25, with OSU, Texas, Oklahoma and TCU rounding out the Big 12 presence in the poll. Baylor is part of the Others Receiving Votes, and would be ranked at 27.

The AP Preseason Poll was released this morning, and unsurprisingly, Alabama tops the rankings, with Ohio State, Oregon, Stanford, and Georgia rounding out the Top 5. To find the highest ranked Big 12 team you have to go all the way down to No. 13 to find Oklahoma State, the worst high-ranking in Big 12 history. Texas is at 15, Oklahoma 16, and TCU 20, rounding out the Big 12 presence in the poll. Interestingly, the opponent that Baylor destroyed in the Holiday Bowl, UCLA, enters the poll at 21. Baylor is one of the Other Receiving Votes, and would be ranked at 27. The Bears will simply have to prove it on the field.
