The AP released their final poll for the 2015-16 College Football Season after Alabama secured yet another National Championship under Nick Saban‘s watch. The Crimson Tide were a unanimous pick for No. 1 team this season, receiving all 61 first place votes. Meanwhile, the Clemson Tigers lost not only the title game and their perfect season but their No. 1 ranking as well. Clemson finished a deserving No. 2. Stanford‘s big win in the Rose Bowl vaulted the Cardinal from No. 5 to No. 3, while the Ohio State Buckeyes somehow finish the season as the highest-ranked Big Ten team at No. 4, with Oklahoma rounding out the top 5. Ohio State’s No. 3 finish is confusing as the only ranked teams they beat were Michigan and Notre Dame. Their biggest game of the season was at home on Senior Day against MSU and they fell flat on their face. Hardly impressive for Urban Meyer and his gang.

Michigan State comes one spot short of a 3rd straight top 5 finish, as the Spartans finished No. 6 in the final poll. TCU, Houston, Iowa, and Ole Miss make up the rest of the top 10. Michigan fans can hang their heads high after Jim Harbaugh and his Wolverines finished at No. 12. The complete poll is listed below:
