Meanwhile, Ohio State - which is ranked second - is making its 29th consecutive appearance in the preseason poll.

Alabama opens the season September 2 against third-ranked Florida State in Atlanta. Ohio State was No. 2, edging No. 3 Florida State and preventing the first 1 vs. 2 opening game since the preseason poll began in 1950.

The Cowboys started at No. 21 last season. SEC East rivals Georgia (No. 15) and Florida (No. 17) follow and Tennessee is No. 25. Florida 18. Miami 19. But for the second straight year the Bulldogs finished the season unranked in the AP poll after being ranked.

No. 12 Auburn will open the season against Georgia Southern on September 2 at 6:30 p.m. central time at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Alabama was an overwhelming choice for No. 1 and led a list of six Southeastern Conference teams in the poll.
