AP College Football poll: Arizona Wildcats ranked 22nd in preseason rankings

Some more snubbery

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The preseason AP Poll was released on Sunday, and the Arizona Wildcats check in at 22nd.

Here's a look at the entire top 25:

Ranking Team Points
1 Ohio State (61) 1,525
2 TCU 1,428
3 Alabama 1,322
4 Baylor 1,263
5 Michigan State 1,256
6 Auburn 1,192
7 Oregon 1,156
8 USC 1,085
9 Georgia 991
10 Florida State 959
11 Notre Dame 873
12 Clemson 862
13 UCLA 698
14 LSU 675
15 Arizona State 605
16 Georgia Tech 588
17 Mississippi 563
18 Arkansas 410
19 Oklahoma 394
20 Wisconsin 393
21 Stanford 347
22 Arizona 311
23 Boise State 240
24 Missouri 219
25 Tennessee 114

Ohio State was the unanimous selection for the top spot. Arizona finds itself behind three other teams in the Pac-12 South, and five other Pac-12 teams total, including Stanford, which boggles my mind at least.

This isn't the first time Arizona has been ranked 22nd in a preseason poll this year. The Cats are also 22nd in the Coaches Poll.

Arizona opens the 2015 season a week from Thursday against UTSA in Tucson. The first time they'll play another ranked team is UCLA on September 26th, also in Tucson.
