MI debuts at No. 15, MSU unranked in preseason coaches’ poll

Alabama is one of six SEC teams ranked in the top-15 of the preseason Amway coaches poll. Those, along with Ohio State and LSU at No. 5, are the only other programs to receiver first-place votes. The Big Ten is still scheduled to play on Labor Day weekend as scheduled while the ACC will have its teams start play on September 12.

Ohio State represents the Big Ten at No. 2, followed by three teams from Southeastern Conference - Alabama, Georgia and LSU. Notre Dame, meanwhile, checked in at No. 10.

Baylor, TCU and Kansas State each received votes in the poll. It's the second straight season the Mountaineers began the year without a single vote.

Ohio State, which lost 29-23 to Clemson in a Fiesta Bowl semifinal previous year, is second in the poll and received 17 first-place votes.

Nebraska and IN were among the teams outside the top-25 who also received votes. Over the last 10 years, WVU also finished a season ranked in the Coaches' poll in 2018 (22nd) and 2011 (18th).

The other major college football poll, the Associated Press, has not released its preseason rankings yet, but it is expected to come out in the next couple of weeks.
