Georgia’s place in all-time Top 25 AP poll

The following is the all-time Top 25 of The Associated Press Poll, which takes all the of the points from every season-ending ranking and adds them up similar to how each weekly poll is conducted.  

Specifically, a first-place vote is worth 25 points, second 24 points, and all the way down to one point for No. 25, although the majority of years there were fewer than 25 teams listed. 

From 1936 to 1961 the wire service ranked 20 teams. From 1962 to 1967 only 10. It went back to 20 from 1968 to 1988 before expanding to 25 teams in 1989. Consequently, the all-time poll is weighted a bit toward the most recent result.  

The all-time AP Poll was originally compiled and organized by Charles Woodroof, former SEC Assistant Director of Media Relations, and appeared regularly in the annual SEC Media Guide. 

The weekly AP poll serves as the in-season gauge until the College Football Playoff rankings are released, starting in November. While AP still crowns a champion at the end of the season, the College Football Playoff rankings ultimately determine which teams will have an opportunity to play for the national championship. 

Georgia, which lost to Alabama in the College Football Playoff title game, finished the 2017 season second in the AP poll.
