The current Football Championship Series Coaches Poll is an up-to-date ranking of the top 25 FCS teams based on the judgment of current FCS coaches. The panel is chosen at random from coaches indicating their willingness to participate in cooperation with American Football Coaches Association and Collegiate Commissioners Association.
In the voting process, each coach submits their weekly Top 25, with 25 points awarded for a first-place vote all the way down to a single point for a 25th-ranked school. Teams are then ranked by the total number of points they received, and first-place votes are shown in parenthesis. Just below the rankings are a list of teams sitting just outside the top 25 and the number of votes they received in the current poll.
