With the close of the 2012 regular season, and the 2013 BCS Championship game set between Notre Dame and Alabama, fans are already turning their attention to next season; especially those that won’t be making a trip to sunny South Beach this January.

Athlon Sports has released a very early look at next season’s rankings. To no one’s surprise, the Alabama Crimson Tide come in at the top spot. The Tide will be returning QB AJ McCarron, who announced recently that he would be back for his senior season.
