College Football Rankings: Alabama Tops The Way-Too-Early 2013 Top 25

By Dave Miller, National Football Post

With the 2012 college football season officially in the books following Alabama’s thorough thrashing of Notre Dame in the BCS national championship game at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, let’s take a look at a way-too-early potential Top 25 heading into next season.

The countdown to next year begins now — we are 234 days away from the start of the 2013 season. Can Alabama make it three BCS titles in a row? At this point, I wouldn’t doubt it.

With that in mind, let’s take a glance at how the National Football Post stacks up the Top 25 heading out of the title game in Miami. And, of course, these rankings ARE subject to change.

Note: Tomorrow at the NFP I will break down the Top 25 more in depth…

Way-Too-Early 2013 Top 25

The next five: Michigan State, Arizona State, Texas Tech, Ole Miss and Virginia Tech

Five more: Wisconsin, Vanderbilt, USC, Washington and BYU
