2016 College Football Researchers Association (CFRA) Midseason Poll

College Football history is being made this morning as the first-ever CFRA Midseason Poll has been published.  One of the new benefits of our new periodic format is that with that there will be a slew of changes with each poll that is voted on.  That can definitely be said about this week’s poll as a total of 11 teams have dropped out of the poll since our last edition was formulated in the preseason.  One of those teams, the LSU Tigers, were in fact # 4 in the country in that poll!  Likewise, 12 teams enter the poll for the first time this season including two top ten teams (Nebraska, Texas A & M).  Without further ado, here is this year’s CFRA Midseason Poll.

1.  Alabama (11)– 299 points
