FSU, under first-year head coach Willie Taggart, will open the 2018 season ranked No. 19 in the Amway Coaches Poll, which was released Thursday afternoon.

The SEC media members largely agree, based on the fact that three-fourths of them picked Alabama to win the SEC Championship Game this season even though the Tide failed to appear in the contest last season.

But with new quarterback Shea Patterson, a potentially revamped offensive line, and an elite defense, the Wolverines placed accordingly, ranking 14th overall in the inaugural release.

Bedlam rivals Oklahoma and Oklahoma State came in at Nos. Shea Patterson, a transfer from MS, is expected solve the team's problems at quarterback. "That's a good sign for this season". It's the first time in program history that the Knights have been ranked in the top 25 to start a season.

3 killed in Greenville plane crash, police say
The Greenville airport is located on the southern tip of Moosehead Lake, and the town is about 150 miles north of Portland. However, this was most likely an emergency landing and Greenville would not have been a scheduled pit stop for the flight.

However, as detractors will be first to tell you, the maize and blue have an uphill battle on their hands, as they face multiple top teams on the road.

Rounding out the top 10 were Washington, Wisconsin, Miami, Penn State and Auburn.

This marks the 17th time in the last 19 seasons that OU has been ranked eighth or higher in the annual preseason coaches poll, and 13th time in the last 19 years it has been ranked fifth or higher.
