* BYU jumps to the top of the list
* Hawaii dives to the bottom
* Ohio State’s still top-25, which is almost unheard of for an elite team. pic.twitter.com/04SBo3Svlf
Running back Tyler Allgeier is gone to the Atlanta Falcons, but highly productive Cal transfer Chris Brooks is replacing him. QB Jaren Hall returns along with potentially one of the top offensive lines in the nation and a dangerous receiving corps.
BYU opponents in the top 25 include Notre Dame (5), Baylor (10), Oregon (12), and Arkansas (23). Utah State released 12 votes and Boise State received 10 votes.
The preseason AP poll will be released next Monday. BYU opens the season September 3 at South Florida.
