ESPN releases preseason top 25 poll; 6 SEC teams make the cut
The college football season starts later this month! Several FBS teams have Week 0 games on the schedule.
The SEC doesn’t kick off until Sept. 2, when Tennessee hosts Bowling Green on a Thursday night to kick off the Josh Heupel era. The other SEC teams will kick off their 2021 campaigns that weekend.
On Tuesday night, ESPN aired its “College Football 2021: The Power Rankings” show and ranked the top 25 teams in the nation. The poll was voted on by 33 ESPN experts, and 6 SEC squads made the cut for the top 25:
- Ohio State
- Texas A&M
- Iowa State
- Notre Dame
- North Carolina
- Penn State
- Coastal Carolina
- Ole Miss
- Arizona State
Can Alabama live up to its No. 1 ranking? Were any other SEC teams snubbed?
