Important Information

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:

  • Chrome 60
  • Android 6
  • Safari 10
  • iOS Safari 10
  • Microsoft Edge Legacy (including all Internet Explorer versions)
  • Firefox 60

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.

Note: For the 2021-22 season, I'll be attempting to resolve some differences between my original source of the poll data, and THE source (Mel Greenberg). During this time I will be updating the total appearances and streaks based on the current data, but I won't publish weekly milestones until I have identified - and hopefully resolved - the issues.
