Alabama No. 1 in AP preseason football poll
NEW YORK (AP) — Alabama will begin this season the way it ended the last two — No. 1.
Nick Saban’s two-time defending national champions are top-ranked in The Associated Press preseason college football poll, with the Crimson Tide trying to become the first team to win three straight national titles.
Much like the BCS championship game against Notre Dame, the vote was an Alabama landslide.
