Round 1 of the NCAA Football Cover Vote is now officially complete with 32 schools emerging from the chaos to move on to Round 2. With more than 600,000 total votes cast, Notre Dame took the opening round by storm, claiming the most votes overall and landing themselves a spot in the next round alongside BCS National Championship opponent Alabama.
As the first round of voting enters the homestretch, Notre Dame and Oregon currently lead all schools in the quest to secure the next NCAA Football cover. Other powerhouses such as Alabama, Michigan and LSU also currently sit above the cut line, as do a few surprise upstarts like Clemson, Army and Navy. Fans of other teams still have a chance to pull off a comeback, as voting on the first round will continue through Monday.
