Note: For the 2020-21 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.
