College Football Roundup: Alabama tops preseason coaches' poll

The SportsXchange

Two-time defending national champion Alabama received the No. 1 ranking in the USA Today preseason coaches' poll released Thursday.

The Crimson Tide was the overwhelming selection, receiving 58 of 62 first-place votes. Ohio State was second with three first-place votes. Oregon, Stanford and Georgia rounded out the Top 5.

Five of the Top 10 teams are from the Southeastern Conference, which has won the previous seven national championships. Alabama has won three of the past four.

Texas A&M, led the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel and the only team to beat Alabama last season, came in at No. 6, its highest preseason ranking since 1995. Rounding out the Top 10 were South Carolina, Clemson, Louisville and Florida. No. 12 LSU gave the SEC six teams in the top 25.

---Texas Christian offensive lineman Tayo Fabuluje has quit the team for personal reasons, leaving the Horned Frogs without a starting right tackle this season.

The school made the announcement Thursday but offered no details.

The 6-foot-7, 315-pound junior started 12 games last season, 10 at left tackle, in his first action since transferring from BYU.

---Oklahoma quarterback Kendal Thompson has a broken right foot, though the Sooners are hopeful that the sophomore will not miss much time, coach Bob Stoops announced Thursday.

Thompson was fighting for playing time with Trevor Knight and Blake Bell. It was unclear when the fracture occurred.
