When is the 2019 NCAA football season?

Position

The 2019 college football season is set to begin, but there are still a few hurdles to overcome before that can happen. 

As we prepare to kick off the 2017-18 season with the 2017 NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (CWS) semifinals, we’re tracking the status of the 2019 season and the candidates to be named to the College Football Playoff (CFB) tournament. 

This year’s playoff is set for February 2, 2019, with the top teams of the CWS seeded at the end of the first weekend. 

The top three teams of each conference will advance to the second round, with a third-place seed playing in the championship game against the No. 1 seed. 

We’ve highlighted the top 10 teams of every conference in the 2019 CWS standings, and we’ll be bringing you all the latest updates throughout the week. 

First, a look at the 2018 rankings. 

For the sake of brevity, we’ve left out the Top 25 teams of last season, but they will be included for reference in this year’s rankings.

The 2018 CWS rankings were based on the average of the teams’ cumulative records through three weeks of play. 

While we’ve made some minor changes to the standings for 2019, we still expect the rankings to reflect the top of the class as of now. 

In the standings below, we’ll include the highest-ranked team in each conference, along with the conference’s best record. 

You’ll also find a summary of the rankings for the next five years, as well as the 2019 rankings.

Here are the rankings as of December 2, 2018.
