Notes

  • * = Received first place votes (non-AP rankings); Hold the mouse cursor over these rankings to see the first place votes (where available) in a tooltip (for browsers that support tooltips)
  • Clicking on the team name will display the week-by-week ranking for that team.
  • Clicking on the points will display the voter detail for that team.
  • The 3WT (3 Week AP Ranking Trend) column represents the net change in AP ranking over the last three weeks by comparing the rank from two weeks ago to the current rank (three total rankings). If a team was not ranked two weeks ago, they are given a default rank of 26 whether they received votes or not. This may or may not be a permanent feature, or it could be changed to four weeks.
  • Polls from 1936-60 had 20 teams, 1961-67 had 10 teams, 1968-88 had 20 teams, and 1989-present had 25 teams.
