FSU football No. 6 in Sporting News' Top 25
We're at the point in the year where publications stop dropping "too early" from their Top 25 preseason rankings. So it is with the Sporting News, which unveiled its Top 25 Monday morning.
Florida State is the only state program that cracked the list. The Seminoles come in at No. 6, one spot ahead of Ole Miss, its Week 1 opponent at Orlando's Citrus Bowl on Labor Day. Defending national champion Alabama was No. 1 and the publication's favorite to win the national title in January at Raymond James Stadium. Clemson was No. 2, followed by Oklahoma, Ohio State and Baylor.
