The preseason coaches poll coming out on Monday is yet another sign that the 2022 college football season is inching ever closer. That preseason top 25 as voted on by the coaches was officially released by USA TODAY on Monday.

Unsurprisingly, Alabama led the way at No. 1 as Nick Saban’s squad returns a lot of talent from a team that lost to Georgia in the national championship game. Ohio State, Georgia and Clemson rounded out the top 4.

In total, 4 B1G teams were voted into the top 25 by the coaches.

Here is how the preseason top 25 shapes up:
