Week 16 FBS College Football Rankings

The playoffs are set. Alabama, Oregon, Florida State, and Ohio State. I expected that after watching the games on Saturday. Are they the most deserving? It’s debatable. Alabama and Oregon definitely belong. Florida State belongs if you believe that a team’s record is the best way to measure their performance. Ohio State? I don’t know. They looked good Saturday night, but the three games before that, they beat Minnesota by 7, Indiana by 15 and Michigan by 14. Not exactly a tough stretch of games, and none of the wins were too impressive. Just proves my point that humans can’t remember too far back when it comes to football.

So here is my final regular season Top 25:

  1. Alabama (12-1, 83.838)
  2. TCU (11-1, 82.375)
  3. Oregon (12-1, 81.869)
  4. Baylor (11-1, 81.461)
  5. Mississippi State (10-2, 81.013)
  6. Ole Miss (9-3, 80.933)
  7. Florida State (13-0, 80.438)
  8. Auburn (8-4, 79.831)
  9. Ohio State (12-1, 79.610)
  10. Georgia (9-3, 79.092)
  11. Kansas State (9-3, 79.079)
  12. Michigan State (10-2, 79.012)
  13. LSU (8-4, 78.725)

Week 15 FBS College Football Rankings

The playoff picture is still far from being decided. If Alabama, Oregon, and Florida State lose next week in their conference championship games, who knows what is going to happen. If all three win, it looks like those three will be in along with either TCU or Baylor. I think Baylor has to go out and destroy Kansas State to jump TCU. People are going to say Baylor deserves it since they beat TCU, but in reality, TCU has been more dominant all season and only played 15 bad minutes against Baylor.

There has been some shake-up in my rankings this week. Alabama holds on to their #1 ranking. TCU jumps to #2. Oregon moves up to #3. Mississippi State slides down to #4 and Ole Miss comes in at #5.

Here’s my Top 25 for Week 15:

  1. Alabama (11-1, 82.285)
  2. TCU (10-1, 81.114)
  3. Oregon (11-1, 79.949)
  4. Mississippi State (10-2, 79.853)
  5. Mississippi (9-3, 79.821)
  6. Baylor (10-1, 79.619)
  7. Florida State (12-0, 79.103)
  8. Auburn (8-4, 78.823)
  9. Kansas State (9-2, 78.548)
  10. Georgia (9-3, 78.181)
  11. Oklahoma (8-3, 77.821)
  12. Michigan State (10-2, 77.805)
  13. LSU (8-4, 77.785)
  14. Ohio State (11-1, 77.594)

Week 14 FBS College Football Rankings

It’s getting close to playoff time. I’m pretty sure my top 4 may only have 2 participants in the playoffs. Alabama remains at #1 and Florida State drops another spot to #10. Look out, here comes UCLA. They have moved up to #11 in my rankings. Arkansas continues to impress as they have moved up to #12, even with a record of 6-5.

Virginia Tech drops to #57 after their embarrassing loss to Wake Forest. Virginia moves up to #45 after their big win over Miami.

Week 13 FBS College Football Rankings

There is a new #1 in my rankings this week as the SEC continues to cannibalize itself. Alabama and Mississippi State swap the #1 and #2 positions this week after Alabama knocked Mississippi State from the unbeatens. Ole Miss continues to hold on to the #3 position. The Big 12’s TCU and Baylor take the #4 and #5 spots this week.

How do the two undefeated teams fare this week? Florida State continues to unimpress in my rankings, remaining in my #9 spot this week. Marshall continues to remain outside my top 25, coming in at #30 this week.

Virginia Tech slides up a few spots to #49 this week after upsetting Duke. I still have a hard time saying that, “upsetting Duke”. Virginia slides down to #62. Old Dominion comes in at #102 this week.
