Georgia ranked 15th in 2017 preseason AP Poll

But none of those teams won the national title.

The Tide also opened No. 1 in the AP poll under Saban in 2010, '13 and '16. This is the sixth time the Tide has been preseason No. 1, tied for fifth most. Wisconsin 10. Oklahoma State 11. The Seminoles will open their season September 2 against No. 1 Alabama in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, site of the College Football Playoff National Championship. Only Penn State (34) and Nebraska (33) had longer streaks in history.

Meanwhile, Ohio State - which is ranked second - is making its 29th consecutive appearance in the preseason poll. Oklahoma 8. Washington 9.

South Florida is No. 19 under first-year head coach Charlie Strong.

Kansas State will enter the football season as a ranked team for the first time since 2014. The last time was 2002 when the Cougars were No. 11. MI 12. Auburn 13. Auburn is 12th, Florida is 17th, and Tennessee is 25th.

"I don't think that's anybody's call to make, including any preseason poll, which basically means little to nothing about anything", Saban said August 3. The voters take an educated guess and then go where results take them.

Oil prices move lower on seasonal pressures
The weekly US crude inventory report from the industry group American Petroleum Institute (API) is due out later on Tuesday. Even so, Citigroup Inc.'s Ed Morse says shale will win over OPEC on oil, as US drillers can survive due to hedging.

Louis Cardinals vs. Kansas City Royals
Kansas City was leading 5-4 at the time and play was delayed for a couple minutes while the grounds crew collected the cat. A small kitten had a big impact on a Major League Baseball game after running onto the field on Wednesday night.

My annual advice on the poll: The AP Top 25 poll is what you make of it.

- 15.4 teams (61.6 percent total) started the season ranked and finished the season ranked. They finished the season 8-5.

The perception is Georgia is the team to beat in the SEC East thanks to a defense that lost only one starter, returns senior tailbacks Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. has a second-year starting quarterback in Jacob Eason and the nation's No. 3 recruiting class.

This is the second straight year and fourth time in the last eight years that Alabama will open the season with the AP's No. 1 ranking, which isn't necessarily a positive sign.

- 1.9 teams that started the season unranked finished ranked in the top 10.
