MILESTONES

NOTE: This is the second poll where teams from the Big Ten, Pac-12, MAC, and Mountain West conferences were ineligible to receive votes since they are not playing at the time of the poll. This has affected many appearance and streak numbers. How this unusual interruption will be notated in the future will depend on when or if those conferences play games, and how the AP handles any polls if they do play. Until then, I'm going to treat them at face value (subject to sudden change), i.e., no asterisks at this point.

Last Appearances:
- Marshall makes first appearance in the Top 25 since the final 2009 poll (165 polls)

Weekly Streaks:
- Auburn's Top 25 streak reaches 20

Total Appearances:
- Cincinnati reaches 60 appearances (#70)
- Florida reaches 620 appearances (#11)
- Louisiana ties Hardin Simmons for #137
- Oklahoma reaches 850 appearances (#3)
- Marshall ties Yale and reaches 30 appearances (#92)
- Virginia Tech ties Georgia Tech and West Virginia for #26
