Subject: NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision: 2016 complete orders

The CFP National Championship game ends with Clemson exacting revenge on Alabama; the Tigers won the title, closing out the eighteenth year of helmet-watching under the Helmet Project. Both teams wore their normal helmets as expected.

The following posts contain the final combined summaries for the 128 teams of the 2016 season of the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision, previously known as Division I-A, in the order of their respective finishes in the conference.

All new helmet designs for this season will have the descriptors for each new designation followed by a letter denoting its order, unless the team has relatively few (or no) helmet changes for the season, in which the team will have the number of games with their usual design after the dates of their introduced new designs. Any new designs currently not up on the Helmet Project site will also contain a link to a photo gallery or picture depicting the helmet.
