2013 NCAA Football: Preseason vs. Final AP Top 25 Rankings
Not too good, actually. Perhaps the prognosticators were a bit optimistic back in August when they came out with their preseason rankings. Or pessimistic, depending on how you look at it.
Eighteen of the preseason top 25 finished lower than expected, and nine of them finished off the grid. Only four of the preseason top 10 finished in the top 10, with two falling out of the rankings all together.
The 2013 National Champions, Florida State, were ranked 11th at the season’s start. The Seminoles and the Oklahoma Sooners were the biggest jumpers within the rankings, leaping 10 slots by season’s end.
Below, take a look at the preseason and final rankings comparison, and also those schools that busted into the top 25 out of nowhere.Follow @VinGetz
