College football rankings: CBS Sports releases post-spring top 25; Alabama on top


With the spring practices now all officially wrapped up around the country, it’s time to begin looking forward to a few months from now when the regular season will get underway and the race to be a part of the first ever College Football Playoff begins.

In anticipation of the new season coming up, the experts at CBS released their post-spring top 25 rankings on Tuesday evening, and it should come as no surprise to see the Alabama Crimson Tide sitting on top, although the team after them, the Ohio State Buckeyes, may turn some heads.

Here’s a look at the complete rankings:

  1. Alabama
  2. Ohio State
  3. Florida State
  4. Oregon
  5. Oklahoma
  6. Auburn
  7. Michigan State
  8. South Carolina
  9. LSU
  10. Stanford
  11. Baylor
  12. UCLA
  13. Kansas State
  14. Georgia
  15. Wisconsin
  16. USC
  17. Arizona State
  18. Nebraska
  19. Texas
  20. Notre Dame
  21. Cincinnati
  22. Texas A&M
  23. Iowa
  24. Duke
  25. BYU

As I said earlier, there might be a lot of people that have an issue with Ohio State ranked ahead of the defending national champions, the Florida State Seminoles, especially considering how much they lost.

    ESPN and CBS have Bama as post-spring #1…I’m not even sure what that means. I hope they are correct in the end, but I think FSU deserves a bit more respect than that…

    This is a joke.. Obviously, they haven’t paid much attention this Spring.

    How in the world is Clemson not even in their top 25? Excellent offense if the qb can stay consistent and likely one of the best defenses in football this year …. This is absurd
