2018 Final CFRA Poll

First of all, I want to thank all of the CFRA voters and followers who make this poll possible.  We could not do it without your enthusiasm and support for this great game.  As expected, Clemson was unanimously selected as the CFRA national champion for the 2018 season marking the 3rd time they have claimed this honor and the 149th overall national champion selected by the College Football Researchers Association.  Interestingly, Clemson has now become the first program since the CFRA was re-established in 2009 to claim multiple unanimous national championships, as all of Alabama’s recent national championships were disputed by at least one voter.  Here is this year’s complete final poll.
