Leading the way on the power rankings is a familiar top 4. Nick Saban’s Alabama squad – and returning Heisman QB Bryce Young – claimed the top spot. The Crimson Tide are also No. 1 on the preseason USA TODAY Coaches Poll and AP Top 25.

Behind Alabama, the top 4 consist of Ohio State, Georgia and Clemson. Based on the power rankings Notre Dame and Utah would be the first two teams outside of the College Football Playoff.
Michigan (No. 8), Michigan State (No. 15) and Wisconsin (No. 18) were the other B1G teams in the top 25.
Texas – a team that received a surprise first-place vote on the coaches poll – was No. 23. Miami – a program that was ranked No. 4 on one AP ballot – was No. 16 on ESPN’s list.
