College football is so close you can practically hear the referee’s whistle. The season kicks off Saturday, both for the nation and the SEC with Vanderbilt taking on Hawaii in the late slot.

College football wouldn’t be about to start if people weren’t ranking teams. ESPN’s Rece Davis joined in on the discourse Wednesday night, including four SEC programs in his preseason top 15 ballot.

The SEC inclusions can be found below:

  • Alabama, No. 1
  • Georgia, No. 3
  • Texas A&M, No. 8
  • Ole Miss, No. 15

Davis listed Alabama and Georgia as the Preseason AP Poll rated them, though he is slightly lower on Texas A&M (AP had the Aggies at No. 6) and slightly high on Ole Miss (AP had the Rebels at No. 21)

The rest of Davis’ ballot reads as follows:

  1. Alabama
  2. Ohio State
  3. Georgia
  4. Clemson
  5. Utah
  6. Michigan
  7. Notre Dame
  8. Texas A&M
  9. Oklahoma
  10. NC State
  11. Baylor
  12. Oklahoma State
  13. Pitt
  14. USC
  15. Ole Miss
