Florida State will open the season ranked seventh in the AP poll, which was released Saturday.

The ranking comes as little surprise. It's the same position the USA Today Coaches' Poll has the Seminoles ranked in its preseason poll.

The No. 7 spot is down one spot from where Florida State opened the 2011 season, in which the Seminoles followed up huge expectations with four losses and a final ranking in the AP poll of 24th.
