Rankings through November 24th

A few minor differences are evident when comparing the plot below with last week's figure; but on the whole, the trends are very similar. Florida continues to be the "surprise" #2 at all values of p in the RWFL rankings, but it would seem to be all but academic that the BCS title game will feature Notre Dame against the winner of the Alabama-Georgia SEC Championship Game. We will wait to see how much higher the winner of that game rises in the RWFL rankings.

Rankings through November 17th

Notre Dame and postseason-ineligible Ohio State are the only remaining unbeaten teams. The conventional wisdom this morning is that an Alabama-Georgia SEC Championship Game might well determine the team to play Notre Dame for the BCS Championship. Interestingly, Florida is currently the solid #2 in the RWFL system at all values of p below. But a one-loss SEC Champion team certainly makes a good argument for inclusion in the BCS Championship Game.

Rankings through November 10th

With Alabama's loss to Texas A&M, and the cycles of victories between different SEC teams, the top of the RWFL rankings appear much more complicated in this week's plot. Of course, for the purposes of the BCS, one fewer undefeated team might simplify things down the stretch.

Rankings through November 3rd

With the undefeateds all winning (some closer than others), the most striking change visible in the plot of the rankings below is the #1/#2 split between Notre Dame and Alabama (depending on the value of p). Our complete RWFL rankings (at p=0.75) will be posted at Kenneth Massey's College Football Rankings Comparison.
