CFB Power Ratings–Pre-Bowl Season

Here are my pre-bowl season power ratings, with bowl games set to kick off Friday. And yeah, my top two power rated teams are playing each other in the semifinals.

Note: these do not take into account players sitting out yet. As for coaches leaving, I don’t adjust much based on interim coaches. Since 2010, teams have performed right at their ATS numbers on average even with interim coaches.
