Poll Methodology and Process

The 2013 Harris Interactive College Football Poll is comprised of 105 panelists and includes former coaches, players, administrators and current and former media. Panelists are randomly drawn by Harris Interactive from among more than 300 nominations supplied by the 10 Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A) conferences and independent institutions. The panel meets Harris Interactive criteria for sample design and is a statistically reliable representation of all 10 conferences and independent institutions.

History behind the Harris Interactive College Football Poll

Harris Interactive launched its first release of the Top 25 college football team rankings on September 25, 2005. The 10 Division I-A conferences and the independent institutions comprising the BCS had commissioned Harris Interactive to conduct a new college football Top 25 poll, results that have become one of the components of the overall BCS standings formula which determines the participants in the BCS National Championship Game and other BCS bowl games played each January.
