2014 College Football FBS Final Rankings

The season is over and Ohio State has been crowned the National Champions. Interestingly enough, they did not finish #1 in my rankings. They had too much ground to make up in the post-season. So who is my #1 team then? Congratulations to TCU! Do I think TCU is better than Ohio State? If they played 10 teams on a neutral field, I believe Ohio State would win 7 times. But in my rankings, TCU finishes ahead. Remember, Ohio State lost to Virginia Tech.

Here is my final Top 25:

  1. TCU (12-1, 133.653)
  2. Ohio State (14-1, 133.446)
  3. Alabama (12-2, 133.267)
  4. Oregon (13-2, 133.092)
  5. Michigan State (11-2, 131.609)
  6. Baylor (11-2, 130.963)
  7. Florida State (13-1, 130.959)
  8. Georgia (10-3, 130.531)
  9. Mississippi (9-4, 130.441)
  10. Mississippi State (10-3, 130.531)
  11. UCLA (10-3, 129.540)
  12. Auburn (8-5, 129.363)
  13. Missouri (11-3, 129.061)

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)
  14. UCLA (9-3, 78.071)
  15. Missouri (10-3, 77.876)
  16. Arizona (10-3, 77.745)
  17. Arkansas (6-6, 77.719)
  18. Oklahoma (8-4, 77.699)
  19. Georgia Tech (10-3, 77.123)
  20. Arizona State (9-3, 77.010)
  21. Texas A&M (7-5, 77.009)
  22. Wisconsin (10-3, 76.921)
  23. Clemson (9-3, 76.891)

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)
  15. Missouri (10-2, 77.250)
