The Associated Press' preseason rankings are out and the Florida State Seminoles will start the season as the 11th best team in the nation in the eyes of the AP.
Ahead of FSU, the Clemson Tigers are the 8th ranked team in the country while the rival Florida Gators are one spot ahead of the Seminoles at 10th. Alabama was the overwhelming choice for number one, followed by Ohio State, Oregon, Stanford and Georgia.
While the SEC had five schools in the top ten alone, FSU and Clemson represented the lone ACC schools to make the top 25. Clemson was voted the favorite to win the conference at last month's ACC media day.
The coaches' poll, which came out a couple of weeks ago, has Florida State 12th to begin the year. The Seminoles begin their season September 2nd on the road at Pittsburgh.
