·3 min read

The official start to the 2022 college football season is just over a week away. For Alabama, Nick Saban won’t lead them onto the field until Sept. 3 against the Utah State Aggies.

A lot of expectations are being placed on this year’s team and it starts with them being ranked No. 1 overall in both major polls. However, did they come out on top across the board?

We used the following polls to determine the composite rankings:

Each ranking was given a point value from 25 to 1. We tallied those numbers between the seven preseason polls and came up with the composite preseason rankings.
