The 2013 college football season kicks off Thursday night, and it's definitely time for a Bleacher Report Official Poll. The interminable wait between January and August is finally over, and the next few months will yield yet another national champion.
The voters have spoken, and here is Bleacher Report's Official Preseason Top 25 Poll.
Poll voters (in alphabetical order): Chris Bello, Adam Biggers, Eric Bowman, Carter Bryant, Phil Callihan, Alex Callos, Andrew Coppens, Bill Eichenberger, Michael Felder, Trenise Ferreira, Sean Frye, Kyle Kensing, Ben Kercheval, Sanjay Kirpalani, Marc Kohn, Adam Kramer, David Luther, Jonathan McDanal, Lafe Peavler, Max Rausch, David Regimbal, Patrick Runge, Barrett Sallee, Alex Sims and Carl Stine.
Each voter submitted an individual Top 25, and every first-place team was given 25 points. The second-place team received 24, and so on with the 25th-place team earning one point. The teams are ranked in order according to total points (first-place votes are in parentheses).
