2012 Preseason College Football Rankings: BlogPoll Top 25 Puts Boise State At No. 20

The BlogPoll Top 25 isn't taking off the offseason completely. Every so often, a new Top 25 will come out over the ensuing months to determine where teams stand before the season gets underway in August. And the first one in January is probably close to meaningless. Sure, it does look like what we'll see come out in August, but injuries, eligibility issues and what not can still affect things.

USC is No. 1 by making an 11-spot jump. Now that they are off bowl suspension, the Trojans appear to be the early favorites for the BCS Title Game with Matt Barkley under center. LSU and Alabama check in at Nos. 2 and 3.

The Boise St. Broncos come in at No. 20, a 13-spot fall from its 2011 final position. It might be accurate for the Broncos come August, but only 22 ballots were submitted this time around.
