AP TOP 25 RELEASED August 15, 2022


EL PASO, Texas – There are five Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) teams, three Pac-12 teams and Notre Dame listed on the preseason AP Top 25 that was released on Monday, Aug. 15 by the Associated Press.

Out of the ACC, Clemson is ranked towards the top at No. 4 while NC State comes in at No. 13, followed by Miami at No. 16, Pitt at No. 17 and Wake Forest rounding it out at No. 22.

The Pac-12 has league favorite Utah starting the season at No. 7 and the Oregon Ducks at No. 11. USC is No. 14 in the preseason poll while the UCLA Bruins were the only other Pac-12 team to receive votes.

Notre Dame is an Independent but is partnered with the ACC Bowl contracts, which include the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl.

“This is an exciting time as we are just a couple of weeks away from the start of College Football,” said Sun Bowl Association Executive Director Bernie Olivas. “With the entire season ahead of us, one never knows and we could possibly see two of these teams listed in the rankings in the 2022 Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl.”

The Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl is set to be televised on CBS for the 54th year on Friday, Dec. 30, 2022 in Sun Bowl Stadium.
