The top seven teams in the FWAA-NFF Super 16 Poll released today remained the same. But it can’t stay that way.
That’s because No. 2 Ohio State plays No. 4 Michigan on Nov. 26 in Columbus, Ohio. For now, the Buckeyes and Wolverines remain among the remaining 11 unbeaten teams in FBS.
But anything can happen. And it might not matter since Alabama continued to look unbeatable with a 49-10 victory against Tennessee. The Crimson Tide received all but two first-place votes.
The six teams behind them in the Super 16 remained the same from last week’s Super 16.
Nebraska moved up two spots to No. 8 while the Volunteers, previously No. 9, dropped to 16th.
West Virginia made its debut this while Florida and Florida State made their return. Miami (Fla.), Ole Miss and Virginia Tech dropped out.
Houston and Boise State were the only Group of 5 teams in the Super 16. Western Michigan, which plays Eastern Michigan Saturday on ASN, and Navy also received votes.
The pollsters consist of FWAA writers and College Football Hall of Famers who were selected to create a balanced-geographical perspective.
