Athlon Sports' 2012 Very Early College Football Top 25

It's never too early to start thinking about next season according to Athlon Sports. That is why they are already out with "a very, very, very early look" at how the top 25 might appear when their 2012 college football magazine is released next year.

Not surprising is that LSU is still ranked #1 in the nation, but what is a surprise is to see Florida State at #8. Boise State debuts at #20, and is the only Mountain West Conference team included in their rankings. TCU will be in the Big12 next season and ranked at #25.

You can see the complete list after the jump:

1. LSU

2. USC

3. Oregon

4. Alabama

5. Georgia

6. Ohio State

7. Oklahoma

8. Florida State
