Brett McMurphy reveals AP preseason poll ballot

The Associated Press preseason poll will be released on Sunday afternoon and that is the Top 25 rankings that college football fans consider to be official. The rankings are voted on by college football writers and analysts from all over the country.

ESPN’s Brett McMurphy is one of those that gets to submit a ballot for the poll.

On Wednesday, McMurphy shared his rankings on social media. His ballot may give football fans a preview of what is to come Sunday and it looks like there could be some major differences in the Coaches and AP polls.

The Amway Coaches Poll has the same number one team as McMurphy in Ohio State, but that is pretty much where the comparisons stops. It seems there are going to be some pretty upset fans when the AP Poll releases on Sunday.

Below is a comparison between the Coaches Poll and McMurphy’s ballot.
