I was just perusing several "preseason" college football sites to see who they pick as the top teams. Without exception, just about every site has Ohio State as the preseason favorite to win the title. Some have Alabama 2nd. Others like Fox Sports have TCU second and even has Auburn ahead of Alabama. They all also have 5-6 SEC teams in the top 10.
One thing is for sure, it is going to be one exciting season seeing all this unfold.
