You know the season is right around the corner when the AP Poll gets released for the first time. It’s in many ways the unofficial kick off the the college football season. This is also a way for us to get some insight into how some of the college football writers around the country are thinking as the season begins. Granted, these polls will look very silly by the end of September, but it’s always fun to analyze.
As we get set to start the 2019 season, three Big 12 teams are ranked in the 2019 preseason AP Poll. The Oklahoma Sooners are ranked fourth behind Clemson, Alabama and Georgia. Texas cracks the top 10 at No. 10. And Iowa State is ranked No. 21, interestingly enough right behind their in-state rival Iowa. The only other Big 12 teams to receive votes were TCU (57), West Virginia (3), and Oklahoma State (3).
