Football fever: OU earns spot in AP Top 25 poll

NORMAN, Okla. – We’re less than two weeks away from the start of the college football season, and analysts are gearing up for what to expect in the upcoming season.

On Monday, the Associated Press released its ‘Top 25’ preseason poll.  

Alabama topped the list after winning the national championship last season, followed by Clemson and Georgia.  Oklahoma was the only team who finished in the top 4 in last season’s College Football Playoffs to not earn a spot in the top 4 of AP’s list.
