Note: As of the February 8, 2016 poll, all regular season and final poll dates that fell on a Tuesday have been changed to Mondays. This is based on research that found that most of those polls were actually through games played on Sundays (as they are now), but the newspapers would not have the full polls published until Tuesday. There are 13 polls that fell on other days of the week that are still being researched.
