2012 College Football Media Polls

By: Maize_in_Spartyland

 

With the release of the Big East Media Poll on Tuesday, July 31, 2012, all media pre-season polls have been released. There were some surprises in projected team order, but many of the projected standings were to be expected.

 

We have complied the media polls for each conference. Also we have included the actual finish for each team in their current conference (“2011 Finish”) and the projected standings for 2011, as projected by the media at this time last year (“2011 Media”)
