2012 College Football Rankings: USC Reigns Supreme In Meaningless Pre Season Poll

The composite 2012 BlogPoll is out and the USC Trojans are No. 1, but they actually received two less first place votes than the No. 2 LSU Tigers. Only 22 sites took part in this preseason poll, so take that for what its worth, there are about 100 sites that are part of the BlogPoll. Of the Mountain West teams only the Boise St. Broncos make the cut at No. 22, and the Wyoming Cowboys nearly made it thanks to Cowboy Altitude putting Wyoming No. 1.

Here is the full poll:
