Clemson and Alabama were the two best college football teams in the country last season. As the 2019 campaign nears, not much has changed. The first AP Top 25 poll will be released on Monday at 12 p.m. ET, and it's likely that the Tigers and Crimson Tide will be the two teams at the top of the rankings. At the end of last season, Clemson defeated Alabama in the final game of the College Football Playoff to win the national championship.
