Poll Methodology and Process

The 2013 Harris Interactive College Football Poll is comprised of former players, coaches, administrators and current and former members of the media who have committed to submit rankings for the top 25 college football teams each week.  These panelists were randomly selected from among more than 300 nominations submitted by the 10 Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A) offices and the independent schools.  The panel has been designed to be a statistically valid representation of all 10 Football Bowl Subdivision conferences and independent institutions.  Today, 105 poll participants submitted their top 25 college football team rankings.  Harris Interactive applies a standard statistical practice that allows it to identify potential instability, error or bias associated with unusual ranking patterns.  Those rankings that are identified through the analysis are verified to ensure that each panelist's intent is accurately reflected.

This week's rankings and other information about the poll can be found at www.harrisinteractive.com/bcspoll and www.bcsfootball.org.
