2019 College Football Researchers Association (CFRA) Preseason Poll

College football is back, and so is the College Football Researchers Association Top 25 poll!   This will be the 22nd season overall that the CFRA will crown a contemporaneous national champion and the 11th consecutive since the re-emergence of the poll in 2009.  The history there may not seem overwhelmingly vast but keep in mind that when you include all of the retrospective champions we’ve elected, this season’s champion will be the 150th in poll history which is more than any other multi-voter, NCAA-recognized poll in the country.  Not coincidentally college football is celebrating its 150th season this year, so the CFRA is the only poll to select a champion for every year the sport has been in existence!

This year’s CFRA Preseason Poll is record-setting in that an all-time high of 63 teams received top 25 votes!  That is almost half of the 130 teams in all of FBS!  Without further ado, here is this year’s preseason poll.
