USC Picked to Edge Defending Tide in AP Preseason Poll By HERSH NISSENSON AP Sports Writer The Southern California Trojans, second-place finishers behind Alabama a year ago, have been picked to edge out the Crimson Tide in 1979 and win college football's national championship. 1,242 of a possible 1,260 points from a nationwide panel of sports writers and broadcasters in The Associated Press preseason poll. The Trojans posted a 12-1 record last season, including a 17-10 victory over Michigan in the Rose Bowl. Alabama, which made the voters look good a year ago by finishing No. 1 in both the preseason and final polls, was relegated to the runner-up position this time. The Crimson Tide received 11 first-place votes and 1,141 points. They were 11-1 in 1978, including a 14-7 Sugar Bowl triumph over Penn State. Oklahoma, third in the final 1978 ratings, holds dovn that same spot in the 1979 preseason balloting with four first-place votes and , 1,058 points. The other first-place ballot went to Texas, which wound up No. 9 last season but was picked fourth this year with 1,008 points. Rounding out the preseason Top Ten are Penn State, Purdue, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame and Michigan State. The final 1978 Top Ten consisted of Alabama, Southern Cal, Oklahoma, Penn State, Michigan, Clemson, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Texas and Houston. In the final 1978 rankings, Purdue was 13th and Michigan State 12th. They were picked this time to crack the Top Ten and oust Clemson and Houston. Clemson did not even make the preseason Top Twenty while Houston is No. 16. "A lot of people have talked about us being No. 1, but on Sept. 9 no one will really care who was first in the preseason poll," said Southern Cal Coach John Robinson. "It's nice, but it really doesn't mean very much. "Everyone's 0-0-0 right now. I think we have the talent to be considered for No. 1, but my belief now is that there are maybe 10 or 12 teams that will be contenders at the end of the year." Asked if he thought it helped or hurt a team to be picked No. 1 before the season started, Robinson said, "I guess you'd have to look back at the last 10 years and see how the national champions started out." Told that Alabama was No. 1 in the 1978 preseason poll, Robinson replied, "Then I like it." The preseason Second Ten consists of Georgia, Missouri, Stanford, Texas A&M, Washington, Houston, Pittsburgh, Arizona State, Florida State and Arkansas. In the final 1978 Second Ten were Arkansas, Michigan State, Purdue, UCLA, Missouri, Georgia, Stanford, North Carolina State, Texas A&M and Maryland.
