NotesEdit

  1. Overtime rules in college football were introduced in 1996, making ties impossible in the period since.[2]
  2. Dave Brock was fired on October 16, 2016, after posting a 2–4 record for the season. Dennis Dottin Carter took over as interim head coach, and he finished the season with a 2–3 record.
