However, Oklahoma fans picked the Sooners as their No. 3 team.
The college football season is only 10 days away, so it’s time to release the brand new SB Nation NCAA FanPulse preseason poll, voted on by you, the fans! Sixty-six of the NCAA team brands voted to create the inaugural FanPulse Top 25, and here’s what the data tells us heading into the 2019 season:
However, here’s how Oklahoma Sooners fans voted:
- Ohio State
- Notre Dame
- Texas A&M
- Penn State
- Iowa State
- Michigan State
Oklahoma fans did a pretty decent job with this! They’re high on the Sooners, yet rational enough to keep them behind Clemson and Alabama. At the same time, they took Texas down a peg without completely casting them asunder. Finally, they included Army at No. 25, showing some respect for the program that gave them a bit too much of a scare this past fall.
However, as is the case with the overall poll (and every poll), Michigan is probably too high.
