There’s a very clear top tier, here. Very little separates the top four here. I would expect some shuffling among them as they keep winning, depending on their opponents for the week.
Most people start the mushy middle here, but according to the model, Maryland has separated itself a bit. The TX win looks good, and the only loss is to the #1 overall, no shame in that.
Here we begin the mushy middle, though, this model has this a smaller than others. Iowa, MN, MSU, and Purdue are all grouped tightly. I’m a bit surprised Iowa is still this high, really.
Indiana falls back a bit after getting blown out by PSU.
UNL doesn’t really improve all that much, as Illinois is very bad.
jNW and Illinois in a virtual tie 1⁄3 of the way through the season, just as everyone predicted.
Yes, UCF is still #1 overall. Blowing out Memphis is good, and the Maryland win is looking much better, too. They’re a good team, though, probably not #1 overall. Again, getting two games cancelled is helping them. Their SoS is going to take hits, but they may be favored in every game left (watch out for SMU and Navy).
Other than UCF being #1 overall, things mostly make sense.
Florida State’s rise is more of a reflection of where they were and having played 2 fewer games than most other teams.
TAMU and Arkansas were ranked wrong last week. The place where I get my scores had the score wrong from their game against eachother. Nothing to see here.
Hey, there’s MSU, This seems much more appropriate for where they appear to be.
Illinois, getting your ass kicked by this UNL team, well, that ain’t good.
About time for Todd Graham to look for his next dream job.
Air Force not looking as competent as they typically do.
What the hell does Cal expect out of it’s football team?
