Preseason College Football Rankings 2016: Predicting the AP's Top 25

The Associated Press is set to release its preseason Top 25 on Sunday, bringing us ever closer to the start of the 2016 college football season. That will give us two preseason polls, following the release of the Amway Coaches Preseason Top 25 earlier this month, which provides a better sense of which teams are expected to be the top contenders in the country.

Of the two polls, the AP tends to earn more overall credit since it’s voted on by 61 members of the national college football media, as opposed to the Amway poll, which is comprised of coaches’ ballots. That doesn’t make predicting how those pollsters will vote any easier, though the existence of the coaches’ poll does provide a bit of a baseline.

We’ve projected how the entire poll will look, basing this off historical data as well as from coverage provided by national media members this offseason. Think we’re way off in some areas? Let us know in the comments section.
