AP Top 25 Preseason Poll Released: Where Maryland's Opponents Stack Up

Maryland to face two ranked opponents this year.

Rob Carr

The AP Top 25 Poll has been released, and Maryland is yet again without a single vote. However, multiple Terrapin opponents, both present and future, make their appearances around the poll, so let's take a look at how it turned out.

Two Maryland opponents made the poll - Clemson (#8) and Florida State (#11). The Terps will travel to Tallahassee and host Clemson this season.

The B1G is tied for second (with the Pac-12, behind the SEC) among conferences with five teams represented (#2 Ohio State, #17 Michigan, #18 Nebraska, #22 Northwestern and #23 Wisconsin), while the ACC has just two (#8 Clemson and #11 Florida State).

It's the same 25 teams from the Coaches' Poll a few weeks ago, with all but six in the same place. Here's the full poll:
