College football rankings: ESPN ‘Way-too-early’ 2014 preseason top 25


Monday night, the Florida State Seminoles completed a dominant regular season at 14-0 as they defeated the second-ranked Auburn Tigers in the 2014 BCS National Championship Game, 34-31, in one of the more exciting finished we’ve seen in the BCS era.

Naturally, with the win, the Florida State Seminoles will finish the 2013 college football season as the number one ranked team in the country as national champions.

This fact also signifies that the college football season has sadly come to an end and now we have to patiently wait until next year.

Regrading next year, however, ESPN put together their ‘Way-too-early’ top 25 preseason rankings for the 2014 season, and while the ‘Noles are number one, there’s a familiar face at the number two slot:

  1. Florida State Seminoles
  2. Alabama Crimson Tide
  3. Oregon Ducks
  4. Stanford Cardinal
  5. Auburn Tigers
  6. Michigan State Spartans
  7. UCLA Bruins
  8. Oklahoma Sooners
