Season III FCS Rankings[edit]

One human poll and a committee's selections comprise the Season III National Fake Collegiate Athletic Association (NFCAA) Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) football rankings. There is one main weekly poll that begins in the preseason, which is the Coaches' Poll. One additional poll, the Selection Committee's ranking, is usually released starting midway through the season. The Selection Committee rankings determine who makes the 24-team playoff that decides the FCS National Champion.
