Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The Division I-A, I-AA and I-AAA designations were confusing and as a result, misapplied by the public, boosters and media when referring not only to their local football programs but also to other sports such as basketball. The Division I Board of Directors, composed of Division I presidents and chancellors voted on the change in August 2006. The Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly I-A) includes those programs that compete in an effort to participate in the postseason bowl system. The NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (formerly I-AA) includes those programs that compete in an effort to participate in the NCAA championship postseason structure (one of the 88 NCAA national championships).

  2. ^ Jacksonville competes in the Football Championship Subdivision of Division I.
  3. ^ The yellow color is used only when Jacksonville reaches a bowl but does not hold a share in the conference title. In any case that Jacksonville has a share of the conference championship, the green color is used.
  4. ^ The blue color is used only when Jacksonville receives a playoff berth but does not hold a share in the conference title. In any case that Jacksonville has a share of the conference championship, the green color is used.
  5. ^ Overtime rules in college football were introduced in 1996, making ties impossible.
