Preseason College Football Rankings 2014: Winners and Losers from AP Poll
David J. Phillip/Associated Press

USA Today released its preseason Amway Coaches Poll three weeks ago. Now, it's time to get angry at the voting media, which is clearly underrating your team and an obvious fan for that cheating rival team, in the preseason Associated Press Top 25 poll

It's no surprise that Florida State, the reigning national champion, is the preseason No. 1 team. The Seminoles simply have too much talent returning not to be an early favorite to go wire-to-wire in the first College Football Playoff season. Consider them the first "winner," if you will, before the season starts. 

The entire AP Top 25 is listed below (first-place votes are in parenthesis):

1. Florida State (57)
2. Alabama (1)
3. Oregon (1)
4. Oklahoma (1)
5. Ohio State
6. Auburn
8. Michigan State
9. South Carolina
10. Baylor
11. Stanford
12. Georgia
13. LSU
14. Wisconsin
15. USC
16. Clemson
17. Notre Dame
18. Ole Miss
19. Arizona State
20. Kansas State
21. Texas A&M
22. Nebraska
23. North Carolina
24. Missouri
25. Washington

Who are some other winners and losers from Sunday's AP poll? The answers are in the following slides. And, as ESPN's Brett McMurphy tweets: Don't like the preseason Top 25? Don't worry, as it is guaranteed to look quite different by year's end.
