Welcome to SB Nation’s FanPulse college football rankings!

Each team community has been voting this preseason, creating their very own top 25 poll. The first results are in, with defending champion Clemson topping the board. Alabama and Georgia followed, with Oklahoma and Ohio State rounding out the top five.

Here’s a look at the national poll.

SBNation FanPulse

As for us, the data you gave us created Rocky Top Talk’s very own top 25 poll. As a community, we weren’t that much different from the national poll, but that should change as we get a chance to see these teams hit the field in the coming weeks.

The main place that we were different was our view of Florida, placing the Gators 11th on our ballot while the Gators remained as the 8th ranked team in the national poll.
