Florida Near Unanimous #1, Heels #21 In First AP College Football Poll

NEW YORK (AP) -- Florida is No. 1 in The Associated Press' preseason Top 25 released Saturday, followed by Texas, Oklahoma, Southern California and Alabama. But the Gators are in a class by themselves, the most overwhelming preseason No. 1 in the history of the media poll.

Florida received 58 of the 60 first-place votes, or 96.7 percent. Texas got the other first-place votes.

The previous highest percentage of first-place votes for the AP preseason poll, which started in 1950, was 95.4 percent for USC in 2007. Those Trojans got 62 of 65 first-place votes - and didn't play for the national title.

The North Carolina Tar Heels are at #21 while East Carolina and North Carolina State failed to crack the top 25.
