TURF TOP 17 Coll FB Poll

During the college football season, Artificial Turf will present their TOP 17 every Sunday night.  This poll will have no bearing on the BCS standings but should. The Turf crew and other selected pollsters will vote for their top 17 every week.

Artificial Turf's Top 17 College Football Poll will still be released every Sunday night during the season. It will be available by 8 p.m. right here. The Turf will be back on the air beginning September 7th. The station will be named shortly

Note: Pollster Mark Knudson's personal stand: "Due to schools from the Southeastern Conference allowing the practice of “oversigning” during recruiting (which other conferences do not allow) SEC teams are ineligible for this ballot. "
