With the NCAA Football season right around the corner, the Associated Press recently released their first poll of the 2010 season. With no surprise, last year’s defending champions Alabama land on top of the pre-season rankings, but don’t count out the Buckeyes from Ohio State or the Boise State Broncos, both of whom might have a slight advantage in their scheduled match-ups this season. With 54 out of 60 possible first place votes, the Crimson Tide will look to recreate last season’s perfect 14-0, only this year they’ll be in the sites of every team looking up at them from day one.
