The 2022 college football season is right around the corner, which means it's preseason poll time.

The Crimson Tide enter the season with the reigning Heisman Trophy winner at quarterback in junior Bryce Young, junior edge threat Will Anderson Jr. and a pedigree of success under legendary coach Nick Saban. Ohio State chimes in at the No. 2 spot. Coach Ryan Day's team, led by Heisman Trophy contender C.J. Stroud at quarterback, earned five first-place votes and 1564 overall points.
