Defending national champion Alabama had 17 first-place votes and 1,411 points while LSU, the Crimson Tide's SEC rival, got 16 first-place votes and 1,402 points. Oklahoma and Michigan each received 1 first place vote to complete the 60 overall first place votes.

Missouri Valley Conference Places Five Teams in First Voting

Led by a No. 2 national ranking by defending national champion North Dakota State, a total five Missouri Valley Football Conference teams rank in the Sports Network pre-season Top 25 rankings. The Bison are joined by MVFC members UNI (9), Youngstown State (13), Illinois State (19) and Indiana State (23) in the rankings. All 10 MVFC members received at least one vote in this year's pre-season Sports Network poll.

A national panel of sports information and media relations directors, broadcasters, writers and other dignitaries select the top-25 each season. A first-place vote is worth 25 points, a second-place vote 24 points, all the way down to one point for a 25th-place vote.
During the regular season, the Top 25 will be released every Monday afternoon, except for the final weekend of the regular season, when it will be released Sunday morning, Nov. 18, prior to the selection of the FCS playoff field.

The Sports Network will release a final Top 25 following the FCS championship game, which will be held Jan. 5 in Frisco.
