Defending national champion Florida State is on top of the Associated Press preseason poll, which was released Sunday.
The Seminoles, led by Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Jameis Winston, start the season No. 1 for the sixth time overall and first since 1999 when they were first all season long.
Florida State received 57 of 60 first-place votes. No. 2 Alabama, No. 3 Oregon and No. 4 Oklahoma each got one first-place vote.
Ohio State rounded out the top five.
Auburn, which lost the national title game to Florida State, starts off the season at No. 6.
A selection committee will choose four teams at the end of the regular season to play the first College Football Playoff to determine the national champion.
