One human poll made up the 2010 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) football rankings, sometimes called the NAIA Coaches' Poll or the football ratings. Once the regular season was complete, the NAIA sponsored a 16-team playoff to determine the year's national champion. A final poll was then taken after completion of the 2010 NAIA Football National Championship.[1]

The poll release dates were:

  • April 19, 2010 (Spring)
  • August 9, 2010 (Preseason)
  • September 13, 2010
  • September 20, 2010
  • September 27, 2010
  • October 4, 2010
  • October 11, 2010
  • October 18, 2010
  • October 25, 2010
  • November 1, 2010
  • November 8, 2010
  • November 14, 2010 (Final)
  • January 10, 2011 (Postseason)
