Penn State Garners Two Votes In Preseason AP Poll

USA TODAY Sports

Alabama is the clear No. 1 to begin the 2013 season.

Penn State isn't ranked to start off the 2013 college football season (which starts in 12 days!!), but they did receive two votes in the Associated Press poll released this morning, good enough to be the "42nd-place" team in the nation.

Big Ten teams that are ranked in the poll include #2 Ohio State, #17 Michigan, #18 Nebraska, #22 Northwestern and #23 Wisconsin. Michigan State received 95 votes to sit atop the "Also Receiving Votes" section of the poll.

Alabama got 58 of 60 first-place votes to tie for the largest first-place preseason lead in the poll's history. The top ten after Bama and Ohio State included Oregon, Standford, Georgia, South Carolina, Texas A&M, Clemson, Louisville and Florida.

Penn State is only eligible for the AP Poll as the Coaches Poll does not vote on teams that are sanctioned.
