No. 1 Alabama tops preseason Top 25; Wisconsin ranked 4th

Mandel’s Mailbag Would an Alabama Clemson rematch help or hurt college football

Going for their second straight national championship, the Alabam Crimson Tide already have one three-peat in the bag.

The AP preseason poll was released Monday, and the Big Ten accomplished something it hasn't in almost six decades of the preseason poll.

Last year, the Bulldogs won nine games, the third time they've done that in four years, and finished the season as the 19th ranked team in the AP Poll last year. The Southeastern Conference claimed three in the top 10, as Auburn is No. 9, and the Pac-12 had three in the top 15 with Washington at No. 6, Stanford ranked 13th, and Southern California at No. 15. Earlier in the month, Alabama was ranked as the No. 1 team in the preseason Amway Coaches Poll, receiving 61 of the 65 possible first-place votes.

Donald Trump military parade put on hold amid reports of soaring costs
A city official added that the Trump administration requested an estimate from the city this week. The final plan has not been approved by Defence Secretary Jim Mattis, according to local media.

Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa holds up the championship trophy after defeating Georgia in January. The Mississippi State football team has high expectations and high standards for itself this year. Clemson received 18 with Wisconsin picking up the other. The Big 10's Wisconsin Badgers and Ohio State Buckeyes round out the Top-5.

It's the fifth time Alabama has entered the season ranked No. 1 under Coach Nick Saban, though a year ago was the only one of those seasons in which the Tide won the national title.

The Crimson Tide has now been ranked No. 1 in the AP poll at least once in the last 11 seasons, the longest such streak in the history of the wire service's rankings.
