BYU linebacker Kyle Van Noy is one of 30 finalists in the running to be on the cover of the 2013 edition of Phil Steele's College Football Preview as decided by fan vote.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Van Noy was in third place with almost 20 percent of the vote. Clemson QB Tajh Boyd is leading with 38.5 percent and South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is in second place with 24 percent of the vote.

The College Football Preview has been released every year since 1995 and is a nearly 350-page magazine featuring two-page team previews filled with stats, figures and preseason predictions of every college football team, all personally authored by Steele.

The 2013 preview will be released on June 18, although there is no word on when the online polling will close.
