Going Polling: Florida State Remains 12th in Final Regular Season Coaches' Poll, 13th in AP Poll


The final regular season polls come out today and though they matter very little to Florida State at this point, we'll take a look anyway.

None of the polls will affect Florida State's standing, they are assured of a BCS trip to the Orange Bowl. The polls could affect who the Seminoles play if a non-AQ team can jump up above 16 in tonight's BCS release. That would mean FSU could play NIU as opposed to Louisville.

That could be a possibility...

Florida State stays 12 in the final coaches poll. The top five shifts a little with Georgia dropping from three to five after losing to Bama in the SEC Championship game. The top five is now Notre Dame, Alabama, Oregon, Florida, Georgia. Boise State is ranked 15, NIU is ranked 16, Louisville is ranked 18.

Good news for BCS busters, bad news for schools from AQ conferences.

The ACC is poorly represented with Clemson at 13 and no one else receiving votes.

In the AP poll FSU held steady at 13. The AP five looks different with Notre Dame, Alabama, ineligible Ohio State, Florida and Oregon rounding out the top five. Georgia drops from three to six. 

As for the BCS crew, Boise is outside looking in at 20, but NIU is 16th. The AP doesn't factor into the BCS (and their votes are inferior to the coaches according to Jimbo Fisher) but it's still worth pointing out. 

Clemson is up a spot to 14, no other ACC schools were considered.

I'll be back with Harris poll rankings when they release...
