As expected, Alabama, who won the College Football Playoff last season, is rated No. 1 overall.

The Seminoles' ranking this year is the lowest since 2011, and is the lowest preseason ranking in the Coaches Poll since being ranked #12 prior to the 2013 campaign.

The 65 coaches that vote on the coaches' poll clearly agree that James Franklin's team still has the talent of a top-ten team in the country despite the losses of Saquon Barkley, Mike Gesicki, Marcus Allen, and several other key pieces of last year's team to the NFL.

Clemson is No 2 in the Coaches' Poll, Ohio State is No. 3 followed by Georgia and No. 5 Oklahoma.

Nothing like a little preseason love to get your adrenaline racing, Hurricanes fans, just two days before fall camp opens.
