Today around noon the Associated Press released their official college football 2017 preseason rankings:
- Ohio St.
- Florida St.
- Penn St.
- Oklahoma St.
Michigan landing the #11 spot will force them to earn a playoff contending rather than be given one prior to the season.
Three Big Ten teams cracked the top ten on Monday, Ohio State no. 2, Penn State no. 6, and Wisconsin no. 9. In the 2016 season, Michigan was 2-1 against the same three teams, only losing by three in an overtime thriller to Ohio State.
