The Football Writers Association of America agrees with the coaches and the Associated Press. Oklahoma is the team to beat in 2011.

FWAAA select panel of voters put together the 2011 Preseason Grantland Rice Poll, ranking the top 16 teams in college football this season. Oklahoma, after already receiving top honors in the USA Today Coaches Preseason and Associated Press polls, comes out on top of the FWAA poll as well, with seven first place votes.Alabama is right behind them with five first-place votes. Other schools receiving a first-place vote include LSU, Stanford and South Carolina.

Like the BCS, SEC schools have won five straight Grantland Rice Trophies. Can the Sooners bring an end to that streak?

Here is the full FWAA poll, with first place votes in parentheses.

  1. Oklahoma (7)
  2. Alabama (5)
  3. Oregon
  4. Boise State
  5. LSU (1)
  6. Florida State
  7. Stanford (1)
  8. Nebraska
  9. Virginia Tech
  10. Texas A&M
  11. Oklahoma State
  12. Arkansas
  13. Notre Dame
  14. Wisconsin
  15. South Carolina (1)
  16. TCU
