Head coach Nick Saban of the Alabama Crimson Tide walks on the field against the Florida Gators before the SEC Championship at the Georgia Dome on December 5, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Now, going into the 2018 season, Mississippi State has officially earned a spot in the preseason AP Poll.

The Associated Press unveiled its Top 25 preseason rankings Monday, and the University of Miami is No. 8.

- No. 9 Auburn, No. 12 Notre Dame, No. 14 MI and No. 25 LSU each lead the way with five games vs. other teams in the preseason top 25.

No surprise that defending champs Alabama ranked #1 receiving 42 first-place votes.

Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa holds up the championship trophy after defeating Georgia in January.

The preseason AP poll started in 1950 and since then only Oklahoma from 1985-87 had started No. 1 in three straight years until now.

No other Group of Five school cracked the top 25 but Florida Atlantic received 38 points in the voting, which was good enough for 30th overall.

It's the 16th time in the last 18 seasons the Sooners have started the year ranked inside the top 10 and the 19th consecutive year the Sooners will begin the season ranked. The Wolverines' schedule is particularly nightmarish, with Notre Dame to open the season plus four games against top 11 teams.
