The first AP top 25 poll of the 2021 college football season is out, and it features three teams from the ACC.

Unlike the coaches poll, the AP rankings do not feature Louisville’s first opponent of the season, Ole Miss. The Rebels appeared at No. 25 in the coaches poll, but are the second team in the “also receiving votes” section of the AP.

Here’s the full poll, which features just one U of L opponent, No. 3 Clemson:
