The preseason Amway Coaches Poll was released today with the reigning national champion Alabama Crimson Tide taking the top spot. The Pac-12 landed five teams in the first poll with Stanford leading the way at No. 7. Utah just missed out on making the preseason top 25. They received enough votes to rank tied for No. 28 with Boise State (the last time Utah was ranked in a preseason top 25 was in 2009).
