Season V FBS Rankings[edit]

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