BATON ROUGE - LSU is ranked No. 13 in The Associated Press' preseason college football poll.

Alabama is No. 1 for the second straight season and third time in five years.

The Crimson Tide, coming off a last-second loss in the national championship game that left it No. 2 to Clemson in the final Top 25 of 2016, received 52 from a panel of 61 media members.
  
Ohio State was No. 2, edging out No. 3 Florida State and preventing the first 1 vs 2 opening game since the AP preseason poll began in 1950. Alabama opens the season against the Seminoles in Atlanta on Sept. 2, just the fourth opener involving top-five teams and the first pitting teams ranked in the top three.
  
Southern California starts the season at No. 4. Defending national champion Clemson begins the post-Deshaun Watson era at No. 5.
