Miscellaneous:
- The state of Florida has four teams ranked in the Top 25 for the second time (final 2016 poll is the other). This is only the third time that a state has had four teams ranked in the preseason poll. The others were 1958 (Texas) and 1952 (California).
- According to my records, #3 Florida State will be just the fourth Top 5 team in a season opener for the #1 team, and the highest ranked.
