  1. The AP Poll was introduced in 1936. Thus, there are no polls for previous seasons.
  2. The Coaches Poll was introduced in 1950. Thus, there are no polls for previous seasons.
  3. Rutgers was one of two college football teams. The two teams played each other twice during the 1869 season. Due to both teams having a 1-1 record, both Rutgers & The College of New Jersey (later named changed to Princeton).
  4. From 1929-1975, Rutgers was in a three team conference called The Middle Three Conference. Rutgers won 32 conference championships in that conference, but the NCAA listed Rutgers as an independent during this time.
  5. Overtime rules in college football were introduced in 1996, making ties impossible.
