Here are this week’s NCAA football power ratings. The IAW rating is how many points different between the two teams, on a neutral field, or how many points underdog they would be against Alabama.

College Football Power Ratings Week 6

We have a shakeup near the top this week. It was time to move Ohio State ahead of Clemson. The Tigers are still very, very good, but the elite play just hasn’t been there. This is a reflection of the performance, not the talent, however. Alabama has become the undisputed number one, with Clemson joining a tight pack of four others vying for 3-6. Rank Team RTG 1 Alabama 0.0 2 Ohio State 2.2 3 Clemson 4.6 4 Oklahoma 5.7 5 Georgia 5.8 6 LSU 6.3 7 Auburn 10.2 8 Wisconsin 11.3 9 Penn State 11.8 10 Oregon 12.6 11 … Continue reading College Football Power Ratings Week 6

College Football Power Ratings Week 5

Here are the IAW power ratings, heading into week five of college football. Michigan takes a tumble all the way to 15, Ohio State overtakes Georgia and the rest keep on ticking, mostly. The biggest tumbler this week is Houston, after the redshirt shenanigans this week, including quarterback D’eriq King. Rank Team Rating 1 Alabama 0.0 2 Clemson 1.8 3 Ohio State 4.6 4 Georgia 6.1 5 LSU 6.4 6 Oklahoma 7.6 7 Wisconsin 10.1 8 Auburn 12.1 9 Notre Dame 13.0 10 Oregon 13.3 11 Florida 14.2 12 Penn State 15.0 13 Washington 15.6 14 Texas A&M 16.2 15 … Continue reading College Football Power Ratings Week 5

College Football Power Ratings Week 4

Here are my power ratings heading into the week four matchups. Ohio State is the big mover among the top 10 so far this year. I have them nearly 3 1/2 points better than my preseason rating. The other top gainer still is Wisconsin, who had moved up to number eight, despite admittedly a week schedule to start the year. That changes this week. Rank Team RTG 1 Alabama 0.0 2 Clemson 1.7 3 Georgia 5.4 4 LSU 7.5 5 Ohio State 7.7 6 Oklahoma 8.6 7 Auburn 12.6 8 Wisconsin 12.7 9 Notre Dame 13.0 10 Texas A&M 14.5 … Continue reading College Football Power Ratings Week 4

College Football Power Ratings–Week 3

Here are my updated power ratings, heading into week 3 of the college season. Among the top 5, LSU moved ahead of Georgia this week and Ohio St moved ahead of Oklahoma. Michigan slid out of the top 10 after barely surviving Army. Since week one, I have improved Wisconsin’s power rating by 5.1 points, moving them to number seven this week. Michigan has dropped 4.7. Maryland has moved up 7.8 points. I have had sizeable drops for Nebraska (4.2), Florida St. (7.8), Virginia Tech (4.6) and Stanford (4.7) as well. Rank Team RTG 1 Alabama 0.1 2 Clemson 1.6 … Continue reading College Football Power Ratings–Week 3

College Football Power Ratings Week 2

Here are the college football power ratings after the first full weekend of football. To figure a spread, subtract the underdog from the favorite, factor in home field advantage and there you go. Rank Team RTG 1 Alabama 0.25 2 Clemson 1.52 3 Georgia 6.62 4 LSU 6.64 5 Oklahoma 11.46 6 Michigan 12.02 7 Ohio State 12.28 8 Penn State 12.62 9 Auburn 13.22 10 Texas A&M 13.61 11 Florida 13.83 12 Notre Dame 14.72 13 Wisconsin 15.28 14 Washington 15.45 15 Utah 16.83 16 Oregon 17.03 17 Texas 18.23 18 Michigan State 18.37 19 Mississippi St 18.74 20 … Continue reading College Football Power Ratings Week 2
