Yet another sign that the 2014 college football season is right around the corner has arrived as the USA TODAY Amway preseason Coaches Poll has been released. And in these initial rankings, the Ohio State Buckeyes come in ranked at no. 6.
Here’s a look at the entire rankings.
- Florida State
- Ohio State
- Michigan State
- South Carolina
- Notre Dame
- Arizona State
- Ole Miss
- Texas A&M
- Kansas State
- North Carolina
Of course it is really no surprise that the Florida State Seminoles come in ranked at the top, and they were voted there in overwhelming fashion as well.
With Jameis Winston returning, plus a slew of talented athletes around him, it’s no shock whatsoever that the ‘Noles took top billing.
But as far as Ohio State coming in at six, that seems about right. Head coach Urban Meyer seems to agree with that, too.
Meyer on Ohio State starting sixth in the Coaches Poll: “I think that’s a fair assessment. I had a vote and had us somewhere in there.”

Now also, we have to remember that this poll really has no bearing this season on how everything plays out. But they still have to do it, nonetheless.
