Final FB Poll
AAC leads G5 teams finished ranked

Memphis finished 17th, Navy, Cincinnati, and UCF all were ranked from Nos. 19-24.

It’s the most non-power conference teams that have finished ranked in the final poll in the BCS/CFP era dating back to 1998.

This year, the AAC alone had four teams in the final poll, more than the P5's Big 12 (three), Pac-12 (two) and ACC (one).

CFN's final rankings 1 - 130

Based on how teams finished last season, if we end up with a QB (Howard or otherwise), we could go 4-0 in OOC play. Not saying it would be easy, but at least its possible. No Auburn, OSU, OU type team on the schedule this year.

We finished at #62

56 at Mississippi St
89 Army
110 At Northwestern
Southeastern Louisiana

If you need further convincing that the wise-guy-sports reporters are out of touch then check out this list. Clemson and Ohio State over LSU? Really?

Agreed. They formulate their own tournament to avoid this kind of crap, crown LSU as the (dominant) champion, then don't vote them #1 in their own poll?

Actually, I think this is all computer simulation driven, based upon simulations and results. I don't think this is people at ESPN voting, which tells me the computer models are not very accurate at all. That's why the preseason rankings and early season RPI's are so messed up. It's BS.
