For only second time, Bulls have a preseason ranking
A potentially unprecedented season for USF football won't start with an unprecedented preseason ranking. At least not yet.
USF's No. 21 ranking in the preseason Amway Coaches Poll, released Thursday, is two spots lower than the program's highest preseason showing ever.
The 2008 team was No. 19 in the Associated Press' preseason poll (and 21st in the coaches poll).
The 2008 and '17 seasons are the only ones in which USF has cracked a preseason top 25. USF is the only Group of Five program in the coaches' preseason poll.
The preseason AP poll will be released Aug. 21. Our own Matt Baker is a voter this year.
