17 in AP poll

The AP analyzed the last 10 seasons of polls (2007-16), comparing the preseason rankings with the final Top 25.

Can Alabama keep this winning streak by No. 1 teams alive?

The Tigers will face three of those teams this season - LSU on October 14, Georgia on November 11 and Alabama on November 25 - as well as defending national champion and No. 5-ranked Clemson at Memorial Stadium on November 9.

The Crimson Tide received 52 of the 61 first-place votes. Wisconsin 10. Oklahoma State 11.

Others receiving votes: TCU 98, Utah 85, Notre Dame 65, Boise St. 37, N.C. State 26, Northwestern 25, Pittsburgh 23, OR 21, Houston 19, Colorado 18, UCLA 9, San Diego State 9, BYU 5, BYU 4, Nebraska 4, Tulsa 4, Kentucky 3, Texas A&M 3, Michigan State 1.

Other Big 12 programs joining the Wildcats in the 2017 Preseason AP Top 25 were Oklahoma (7th), Oklahoma State (10th), West Virginia (22nd) and Texas (23rd). Southern California and defending national champion Clemson rounded out the top five. OU's all-time average preseason AP rank is 6.7, best in the nation (Michigan is second at 7.4). Oklahoma 8. Washington 9. Florida 18. Miami 19.

Auburn was ranked No. 12.

UGA is also ranked 15th in the Amway Coaches Poll that was released on August 3. In 1989, the Sooners started at No. 15. They finished the season 8-5.

It's the third time that the Bedlam rivals will start the AP poll inside the top 10.

Starting the season ranked in the top 20 is familiar territory for the Georgia football team the past five years.
