Defending national champion Alabama is No. 1 in The Associated Press preseason Top 25 as the Crimson Tide attempts to win a fifth title in eight seasons.
    
Coach Nick Saban's Tide received 33 of 61 first-place votes from the media panel and 1,469 points. No. 2 Clemson received 16 first-place votes and 1,443 points. It's the first time since 1992 that Nos. 1 and 2 in the preseason rankings are the same as they were in the final poll of the previous season.
    
Oklahoma is No. 3 and has four first-place votes. No. 4 Florida State has five. No. 5 LSU, No. 6 Ohio State and No. 7 Michigan all received one first-place vote.
    
Alabama is the preseason No. 1 for the fifth time overall (2013, 2010, 1978, 1966).
