The AP Poll has finally released with just over a week before college football officially kicks off! Of course, the Florida St. Seminoles follow many of the other polls that have come out but taking the No. 1 spot. However, FSU narrowly missed becoming the first unanimous No. 1 preseason pick. The top four teams have a bit of separation between them and the rest all securing at least one first place vote.

While the AP Poll continues to be released weekly, its bearing on who will be crowned the eventual National Champion has not changed. Keeping in mind the AP Poll was negated from the BCS system in 2005, the new rankings state that the AP Poll once again holds no weight in the new playoff system. The College Football Playoff Committee will release their own rankings after Week 9 which determines the future participants in the first ever playoff system.
