Jumbo Package: Alabama sits atop preseason Coaches Poll

Happy Tuesday, everyone. Alabama predictably sits atop the preseason Coaches Poll.

Alabama enters the season with the reigning Heisman Trophy winner at quarterback in junior Bryce Young along with junior EDGE threat Will Anderson Jr. and a pedigree of success under legendary coach Nick Saban. Ohio State checks in at the No. 2 spot. Coach Ryan Day’s team, led by Heisman Trophy contender C.J. Stroud at quarterback, earned five first-place votes and 1,564 overall points.

Defending national champion Georgia earned the No. 3 spot but eclipsed Ohio State with six first-place votes, while Clemson and Notre Dame rounded out the top five despite major coaching turnover.
