Rankings through December 3rd

The regular season and conference championships are in the books.  The BCS Championship pairing is now largely in the hands of the voters: Oklahoma State throttled Oklahoma but the computer rankings do not include margin of victory information, though of course Oklahoma State will still be helped greatly in the computers by the win over another highly-ranked team.  We'll know soon whether it was enough to get them back in the Championship picture or if we'll have an Alabama-LSU rematch.

The other BCS bowls hinge on some details of the BCS selection procedures. For instance (as discussed here), does TCU get high enough in the Standings to get an automatic bid, and does Michigan qualify for an at-large bid?  And then ultimately the BCS bowls make their own choices within those constraints.

Our rankings (at p=0.75) for the full FBS and FCS are available on Kenneth Massey's College Football Ranking Comparison.

Going to do a post-bowls ranking? I'd love to see how everything shook out with bama and LSU splitting.

Nick, yes, thank you for the reminder! I had too much to do at work in the days immediately following the Championship and it dropped off my radar. I'll try to post these this weekend. I'm interested to see how these rankings treat the LSU-Alabama split of games, since there is no information about date of game in these rankings.

Thank you for your encouragement,
