This beta version of College Poll Archive is a major upgrade to the web technology that will make it easier to use on mobile devices and easier to maintain. However, it does not support any browser prior to the following versions:
The switch should be sometime in the next few months, so please plan accordingly.
Links will point to the old pages until a new one has been converted. All pages in the main navigation/menu have been converted as well as the button links in the Football section. Other links will have an asterisk if they have been converted (e.g. Total *).
Please contact me if you run into any issues. Include the device and browser that you are using, and the page where the issue occurred.
National Championships (by team, conference, and coach)
AP National Champion that lost their last game:
1943 Notre Dame
Most Appearances at #2 Without Reaching #1 (see Rk #1? column)
January 7, 1948 Special Poll (Michigan/Notre Dame controversy)
AP Poll vs Harris Poll (preseason poll argument)
Others Receiving Votes (ORV) data is available from 2003 to present and some select polls from 1936 to 2002. Older polls – mainly before the 1970s – may or may not include points.
I have ORV data for many of the pre-2003 polls, but it takes time to add it to the database. Once all existing sets of ORV data have been added, you will be able to look it up on the team summary pages.
The weekly appearance streaks of the Big Ten and Pac-12 teams that were ranked in the preseason Top 25 but ruled ineligible by the Associated Press for the first two regular season polls will remain broken on this website.
There are several factors to consider. Some are technical due to the changes that would be required on multiple pages and/or in the database itself. Others relate to questions about teams like Oregon, who was ranked in the preseason Top 10 but reentered the poll at #14. Or Utah who still hasn't reentered the poll (as of October 11).
Regardless of the situation, my goal was to treat each team the same.
All BCS rankings have been added to the AP poll pages with the exception of a small percentage (3%) of teams ranked from #19 to #25 in the BCS that only appeared in the Others Receiving Votes section in the AP Poll. These BCS rankings will not display in the AP team week-by-week view, but are counted in the BCS total appearances.
