2016 College Football Researchers Association (CFRA) Preseason Poll

College football is back, and so is the College Football Researchers Association top 25 poll!  One interesting aspect of this year’s preseason poll is that the Associated Press, Coaches, and CFRA Polls have the same twenty-five teams featured in each of their preseason rankings.  All three polls also feature the same top two teams (Alabama, Clemson) and are bookended with same # 25 team (Florida).  Without further ado, here is this year’s CFRA Preseason Poll.

1.  Alabama (6)– 286 points
