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.
Poll Date Change: All regular season and final poll dates that fell on a Tuesday (primarily before 2007-08) have been changed to Mondays. This is based on research that found that most of those polls were actually based on games played through Sundays (as they are now), but they would not be published in the newspapers until Tuesday or later, depending on the newspaper. There are 13 polls that fell on other days of the week that are still being researched.
Polls with ties at #1 (AP):
January 27, 1981
Most Appearances at #2 Without Reaching #1 (see Rk #1? column)
If you have some research that you would like to publish here, or know of some located elsewhere on the internet, please contact me.
