West Virginia the Lone Big East Team in the Preseason AP Top 25

A couple of quick notes:

  • Pittsburgh received nine votes. They were the only other team to receive votes from the Big East. 
  • The SEC has eight teams ranked in the initial poll, but is unlikely to finish with more than five. 
  • Virginia Tech is not scheduled to face a single team in the preseason rankings. 
  • Auburn faces all seven of the other ranked SEC teams.
  • I tweeted it, but, I believe in the preseason 2012 poll, the Big East will have four teams ranked. If I had to pick those four teams, I'd say they'll be TCU, West Virginia, Pitt, and either South Florida or Louisville. 
  • I also believe that West Virginia, Pitt, and South Florida will finish the season ranked.
