Oregon St. #25 In AP Preseason Poll Too

Oregon St. will start the season a top-25 program! - Scott Olmos-US PRESSWIRE

When Oregon St. starts the season on Aug. 31 against Eastern Washington, the Beavers will be in the same #25 slot in the AP pre-season poll as they are in the USA Today Coaches' Sports Information Directors poll. In a remarkable show of consensus (or a massive copy and paste effort), the top 25 teams are the same ones in both polls, and only 6 teams are even in different slots. And that can be attributed to moving just 2 teams, with the other movement a matter of falling in line.

Alabama is the overwhelming #1, and Ohio St. #2, with Oregon and Stanford immediately behind them.

Just as in the USA Today poll, the rest of the ranked western teams are the same as well with Boise St. #19, UCLA #21, USC #24, and the Beavers rounding out the poll, with a solid margin over Michigan St.

Arizona St. got enough votes to be 30th overall, while Washington and Arizona got a small number of votes as well, with 17 and 3 points, respectively.

Here's the complete AP poll:
