The final Coaches Poll of the 2016 season certainly has an interesting team among their Top 3.

A lot of end-of-season polls have been hot on USC for their performance at the end of the season, but the Coaches Poll has a different look, as they have the Oklahoma Sooners at No. 3 after an 11-2 season and a Sugar Bowl win over the Auburn Tigers.

This may cause some contention among Ohio State fans, as the Buckeyes beat Oklahoma soundly earlier in the season. Of course, Penn State fans will have their own say on their team’s placement in the final poll.

Another surprise? The Washington Huskies maintaining their spot at No. 4. Considering USC beat them near the end of the season, it is a bit of a surprise that the Huskies didn’t fall below the Trojans after a loss to Alabama in the College Football Playoff semifinal.

The full poll:

1. Clemson (60)
2. Alabama
3. Oklahoma
4. Washington
5. USC
6. Ohio State
7. Penn State
8. Florida State
9. Wisconsin
