The Associated Press began its college football poll on Oct. 19, 1936, and it is now the longest-running poll of those that award national titles at the end of the season. The preseason poll was started in 1950. A panel of 62 sports writers and broadcasters from around the country votes on the poll weekly. No. 1 LSU, No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Ohio State were on their bye week this week. This Saturday, LSU and Alabama will lock horns in Tuscaloosa Saturday at 3:30 P.M. Penn State will take on Minnesota in a key match-up that will shape the Big Ten race.

Tuesday night, the first College Football Playoff Rankings will be released
