COLLEGE FOOTBALL / DAILY REPORT : AROUND THE NATION : Florida State No. 1 in Preseason Polls

August 22, 1993|Associated Press

For the third time in six years, Florida State is No. 1 in the Associated Press preseason poll.

The Seminoles have never won the national title despite six consecutive finishes in the top four.

Florida State, which also started out No. 1 in 1988 and 1991, received 42 of 62 first-place votes and 1,522 of a possible 1,550 points in the nationwide survey of sports writers and broadcasters. The Seminoles also are No. 1 in the USA Today-CNN coaches' poll.

"Why me?" Coach Bobby Bowden said. "It definitely puts more pressure on you when you're No. 1. It means everybody's out to get you."

Defending national champion Alabama is second in the AP poll.
