The Sporting News and Valvoline have launched a new preseason college football poll for fans. From the press release:
Valvoline and SportingNews.com have announced the launch of the Sporting News Fan Poll backed by the Valvoline Engine Guarantee. The poll – which runs through August 31 – allows fans to vote on their college football preseason top 25 for head-to-head comparison with expert predictions and mainstream media-generated polls.
College football fans’ unbridled passion often translates to constant tracking of their favorite teams before, during and after the season. They are up-to-speed on the make-up of their alma mater’s squads – not to mention their opponents and rivals – oftentimes making them just as equipped as the pundits to make accurate predictions on what should happen each season. History has shown that the end-of-season rankings often reflect that the experts’ preseason rankings were far from guaranteed. Now, Valvoline and SportingNews.com are helping shine the spotlight on the fans – the true “experts” – to prove they know what should happen this coming season. Fans can submit their picks by visiting SportingNews.com/fanpoll.
“The Sporting News Fan Poll backed by the Valvoline Engine Guarantee is a place for the truly devoted to show off their deep college football knowledge. We’re excited to help provide a stage for fans to contend with traditional media polls and talking heads and see which guarantees really hold up when all is said and done,” said Peter Demko, Director of Marketing, Global Brands at Valvoline.
