Alabama tops SI's preseason Top 25
Sports Illustrated's annual college football preview issue hit newstands on Wednesday, and there was no surprise in who topped their preseason Top 25.
Alabama find themselves atop the rankings, just weeks after topping the USA Today preseason Coaches' Poll.
The publication doesn't seem to be too concerned about Johnny Manziel's eligibilty issues, slotting the redshirt sophomore's Texas A&M Aggies in at No. 3.
Alabama and Texas A&M are two of six teams with their own regional cover, joining No. 2 Stanford, No. 4 Ohio State, No. 5 Oregon, and No. 6 South Carolina.
