2018 College Football Researchers Association (CFRA) End of Regular Season Poll

For the first-time since 2014, the CFRA has selected a different “best four teams” than the playoff committee at the end of the regular season.  That season TCU got the nod at the # 4 spot despite the committee controversially selecting Ohio State.  This season, the CFRA has made a statement by ranking the UCF Knights as the # 3 ranked team in the country at the conclusion of the regular season.  It will thus be interesting to see if they can hold off # 4 Notre Dame or # 5 Oklahoma, if the Knights beat LSU in the Fiesta, and # 1 Alabama and # 2 Clemson falter in the playoffs.  Without further ado, here is this year’s CFRA Final Regular Season Poll.

1.  Alabama (10)– 274 points

2.  Clemson– 263 points

3.  UCF (1)– 239 points
