Ohio State first unanimous AP preseason No. 1 team
The program extends record of poll appearances and nears all-time mark at No. 1

The Ohio State Buckeyes are the preseason choice as the No. 1 team in the nation. The college football coaches previously selected the Buckeyes No. 1 in their first poll of the season, the USA Today Coaches Poll. And today, the first Associated Press college football poll of the season was revealed and the Buckeyes are No. 1 in it as well.

And while Ohio State earned 62 of 64 first place votes in the coaches’ poll with TCU and Alabama each securing one vote apiece, the AP pollsters – a panel of media members – selected Ohio State as the unanimous No. 1 with all 61 first-place votes going to the Buckeyes. The AP preseason poll dates back to 1950 and this is the first time it has ever had a unanimous preseason No. 1 team.

Defending Big 12 champion TCU is ranked No. 2 in the Preseason AP Top-25 Poll. The Horned Frogs return 15 starters, including 10 on offense, from last year's 12-1 squad that concluded the campaign with a 42-3 win over Ole Miss in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.
