The projection includes eight SEC teams, and that would equal an SEC record last October that also featured eight top 25 teams. Alabama, Auburn and South Carolina are all projected to be top 10 teams, followed by Georgia, LSU, Missouri, Texas A&M and Ole Miss.

Several way-too-early top 25 rankings included Florida near the bottom of other rankings, too.

Here’s a look at Steele’s projected preseason top 25:
