Florida, coming off an 11-2 record in coach Will Muschamp’s second season, is ranked No. 10 in The Associated Press preseason Top 25 poll released today.

It’s the same spot the coaches ranked the Gators in their poll released earlier this month. UF has been ranked in the preseason AP poll 10 years in a row.
Alabama, which received 58 of 60 first-place votes, is ranked No. 1. The Tide matched Florida’s 2009 total for highest percentage of first-place votes received in the preseason poll. The SEC has five of the top 10 teams in the rankings.
Following Bama are Ohio State, Oregon, Stanford, Georgia, South Carolina, Texas A&M, Clemson, Louisville, UF, Florida State and LSU.
The Gators face four teams ranked in the preseason top 12.
