Learn More About Our Season Preview
CollegeFootballPoll.com is heading in its 17th season on the internet and the featured Congrove Computer Rankings are in their 23rd season. Millions have studied our season previews over the years and an ever-increasing multitude of sports radio shows, newspaper sportswriters and bloggers have reported our projections. Why all the interest? Our previews are based on the Congrove Computer Rankings' proprietary formula that 'plays' every game and reconciles wins and losses across the board. As a result, we can present projections for the win-loss margin of every game, the record of every team, the standings of every conference, and realistic bowl matchups based on the College Football Playoff selection procedures and bowl invitation guidelines. It's the most unbiased forecast you can get as it draws exclusively from hard numbers such as each team's recent history, returning experience, and a mathematical comparison to the teams on its schedule. It is then up to the teams, their players and coaches to live up to the high expectations or overcome the documented weaknesses
 
Conference Realignment - 2015
Very little change is in store for 2015. UAB's program was shut down after the 2014 season, but UNC-Charlotte steps up from the FCS and replaces the Blazers in Conference USA. The only other shift is Navy's migration to the American Athletic Conference from the independent ranks. The overall number of FBS programs remains at 128.
