In the preseason AP Top 25 Poll, the Auburn Tigers come in at No. 11.
Released Monday, the AP Top 25 Poll is committed to releasing a weekly ranking system of the top teams in the country despite this year’s abnormal format.
Despite the cancellation of fall sports in the Pac-12 and Big Ten, among other conferences, AP poll voters named some teams without a schedule to the Top 25.
According to Michael Giarusso, AP’s global sports editor, this was done more as a service to the fans and a tribute to what could have been had the original football season progressed.
With the switch to a 10-game conference-only schedule, the Tigers will face five teams currently ranked in the Top 25, with home games against No. 6 LSU, No. 25 Tennessee and No. 13 Texas A&M, and away games at No. 4 Georgia and No. 3 Alabama.
The full preseason AP Top 25 Poll is listed below:
