Three coaches voted Alabama as the top team in the country in the final coaches’ poll. Steve Sarkisian was not among them.
Here’s a look at how he voted:
He also has three schools Washington played this year — Oregon, Stanford and LSU — in the top 10. That’s consistent with other voters and polls.
Sarkisian slated Boise State, a possible bowl game foe, as the 19th best team in the country.
USA Today has a cool interactive graphic that shows how every coach voted in the last poll of the regular season, which you can find here.
Michigan coach Brady Hoke was the only one to vote for USC, and he surprisingly had the Trojans 24th.
Vanderbilt coach James Franklin has Notre Dame fourth and Oregon sixth.
Stanford was voted as high as fourth and as low as 12th.
