FWAA-NFF Super 16 Poll: Michigan Leaps to No. 2

Michigan Fans

The Football Writers Association of America/National Football Foundation Super 16 Poll  kept Georgia at No. 1, but basically swapped Michigan for Ohio State at No. 2, after the Wolverines defeated the Buckeyes.

That was one of two big changes to the Top 5 of the poll. The other was Oklahoma State crashing the Top 5 at No. 5 after defeating Oklahoma in the Bedlam game.   

Georgia has been No. 1 for more than half the season, and the Bulldogs were a unanimous No. 1 once again, gathering all 52 first-place votes.

But, after Michigan beat Ohio State, 42-27 the voters vaulted the Wolverines up three spots to No. 2 and dropped the Buckeyes to No. 7.

The rest of the Top 5 remained the same, with Alabama remaining No. 3 and Cincinnati remaining No. 4.

Georgia and Alabama will play each other in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday. All of the Top 5 teams are playing in conference title games on Saturday.

The rest of the Top 16 includes No. 6 Notre Dame, No. 7 Ohio State, No. 8 Ole Miss, No. 9 Baylor, No. 10 Oregon, No. 11 Michigan State, No. 12 Oklahoma, No. 13 BYU, No. 14 Iowa, No. 15 Utah and No. 16 Pitt.

Also receiving votes were Houston (53), Wake Forest (53), Clemson (13), San Diego State (10), NC State (8), Arkansas (8), Wisconsin (6), Texas A&M (5), Louisiana (5), Minnesota (2), UTSA (1).

The College Football America 2021 Yearbook  features more than 900 college football teams from the United States and Canada in more than 250 striking, full-color pages. That includes every team from the NCAA (FBS, FCS, Division II and Division III), NAIA, NJCAA, CCCAA and U Sports (Canada). It also includes updates on club football, one-year postgraduate prep/sports academies and Mexican college football, along with dozens of action shots and stadium photos taken by the CFA staff.
