I believe that makes them the first:
Umass ranked 16 (http://www.collegesports.com/sports/m-footbl/stories/052305aaj.html)
In the first football preseason poll for the 2005 season, UMass is ranked No. 16 by AnyGivenSaturday.com, a website covering Division I-AA. The Minutemen are one of seven A-10 schools in the poll which is led by conference foe and defending champ James Madison

I'm getting slow... I searched for threads that said who was the first but missed that one in the thread.
My bad... does this make them second?

I saw the exact same story on CSTV's site yesterday, but with the tagline of Amherst, MA so I guess the UMass athletic department released it before CSTV did.
montanagrizzlies.com reported it last night.
Not sure why I provided a link, it's the same story... :o

I fully expected these to be separate threads... I guess next time I'll hit the search button instead of looking a new thread titles!

UNI reported it first.

I can see that - they were probably shocked to see how high they were. :)

Northern Iowa gets top ranking in preseason poll
CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) Northern Iowa is ranked tenth in a preseason football poll released this week. The NCAA Division I-AA poll is by AnyGivenSaturday.com.
Another Gateway Conference team is also in the Top Ten -- Western Kentucky is ranked sixth. Defending national champions James Madison is Number One, followed by Furman and Eastern Washington.
UNI coach Mark Farley has high hopes for the Panthers this season.
One reason is quarterback Eric Sanders, who was thrown into the starting role last year when Tom Petrie was knocked out with an injury. Sanders, who'll be a sophomore, is expected to carry the team after stepping up as a redshirt freshman.
UNI, which was 7-4 last year, opens the season against Drake on September first at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls.
