Florida State in the Polls: AP, USA Today Coaches

With the season now over, it is now clearer where Florida State will end up in the post season rankings.

With the 2015 College Football season in the books, Florida State ended with a 10-3 record following a loss in the Peach Bowl. The only thing left is where the 'Noles will be ranked in the postseason polls.

FSU entered the Peach Bowl ranked #9 in the AP poll before losing to a #14 ranked Houston team. The' Noles should be the second highest ranked 10-3 team behind current #8 Notre Dame who also lost their bowl game. After all was said and done, Florida State fell to #14 in the final AP poll of the season when they were released last night.

In the USA Today Coaches poll, Florida State came in at #8, just a hair ahead of #9 Notre Dame, who lost to a "better" team, meaning they will probably end the season ranked higher. Houston was also ranked two spots behind where the AP voters had them at #16, which will hurt the 'Noles even more. The only other team relitivley close behind FSU to win was #11 TCU which should be the only team to jump FSU with a slim possibility of #15 Ole Miss and Houston jumping them. FSU should end up anywhere from 12-14 in the Coaches Poll. The coaches wound up punishing the 'Noles, dropping them to 14th behind fellow three-loss teams Ole Miss (against whom FSU will open the 2016 season), Michigan, Notre Dame, and Baylor.
