After 12-1 Central Florida edged out Stanford for the No. 10 spot in the final AP Top 25, the folks at UCF put together a top-10 reshuffle based on football graduation rates.

Who came out on top?

UCF, of course, with its 83 percent mark in the latest academic rankings released by the NCAA.

Clemson, 11-2, ran a strong second with its 77 percent mark, and was followed by 12-2 Missouri at 74 percent, 11-2 Alabama at 73 percent, and 11-2 Oregon at 72 percent.

Auburn (12-2) and Michigan State (13-1) tied for sixth at 70 percent, while 11-2 South Carolina came in eighth at 65 percent.

National champion Florida State (14-0) was ninth, with 11-2 Oklahoma 10th at 51 percent.

What is your point? How many regular students get degrees in those subjects compared to the rest of the student population. Who cares what their degrees are in? As a Clemson grad, no one ever questioned my Finance degree or MBA as not being specific enough.
