It's never too early to get talking about college football, and for SB Nation's congregation of college football bloggers the season truly never ends.
Enter the BlogPoll, SB Nation's college football rankings based on the votes of their college football blogs, in which the Stanford Cardinal find themselves sitting at No. 19 in their preseason top 25.
The LSU Tigers were seen as the consensus favorite amongst the bloggers followed closely by the USC Trojans. Alabama, Oregon, and Oklahoma rounded out the top five.
As for the Cardinal, they're hanging tough after losing a lot of talent to the NFL, though they are one of four Pac-12 teams to make the preseason poll, as the Washington Huskies came just under the wire at No. 25.
The complete detailed blog poll can be found here.
