Notes Edit

  1. The Southeastern Conference introduced divisional play in 1992; the divisional winners advance to the SEC Championship Game to determine the conference champion.[7]
  2. The Associated Press began conducting a weekly college football poll in 1936.[13]
  3. The college football coaches' poll has been sponsored by multiple organizations since its creation in 1950. Its current sponsor is USA Today[14]
  4. Overtime rules in college football were introduced in 1996, making ties impossible in the period since.[15]
