If you love college football, the moment Phil Steele publishes his yearly college football preview, it should instantly be the first thing you read in the morning and the last thing you read at night until college football season begins.

Today, Steele combined numerous outlets to create his Preseason Consensus Top 128 Teams.

No shocker that Ohio State is the number one ranked team in Steele's rankings followed by Alabama, Oregon, Baylor, and TCU.

Georgia, Michigan St., LSU, Notre Dame, and USC round out his top ten.

Steele has seven SEC teams in his top-20 and five Pac-12 teams in his top-25.

USC at number ten is right around where most projections have the Trojans to start the season. Athlon Sports is really high on the Trojans as they have them at six while the Fremeau Efficiency Index has USC at 15.

Idaho, who the Trojans play in the second week of the season, is 126.
