Seminoles Open 2012 Ranked 7th by AP Poll

The Associated Press preseason college football FBS Top 25 poll came out this morning and the Florida State Seminoles found themselves ranked 7th in the nation. Florida State will enter the season ranked 7th in both major polls.

The Seminoles were also ranked 7th several weeks ago when the USA Today Coaches Poll was released. 

Florida State was the highest ranked team in the ACC, Clemson (who won the conference last season) enters the season ranked 14th in each poll after an extremely disappointing Orangebowl. Meanwhile Virginia Tech is ranked ranked 20th by the AP and 16th by the coaches.

The Seminoles are also the highest ranked of the Florida universities, UF is ranked 23rd in both polls while USF received 12 AP votes and 11 from the coaches, FIU received 3 AP votes. 

The University of Miami received no votes.

Florida State begins the season September 1st against Murray State.

"The University of Miami received no votes."

By week 4, watch for them. They will be ranked in the ESPN "Bottom Ten".


Herbsteit and others have picked FSU to be in the NC. Don't particularly like those lofty expectations set. Granted the D is solid, and D does win championships, but the o-line is still key and unproven.
