Last rankings

Refer to last week for the Conferences & Divisions breakdown.

Notes for select teams are below the ratings. 

You may also be interested in the Weighted Ratings (along with an average between the two lists).  The other lists are more in keeping with the Playoff Committee's tendency to focus on the bigger games (how understandable losses are and how many of the top teams one plays).  The formula below is more consistent with the one I've used since 2008, however.

The following list is a normal function of my formula, but it's still worth noting.  If I don't adjust these ratings, very large negative numbers are produced by certain losses, and it gives too much weight to that one week.  These teams have been given the minimum rating as opponents (not above) in place of their actual rating. These are only teams with at least one FBS/I-A win. More teams are added to this list as teams have more losses relative to (usually, the one) win, then others are dropped later in the year (usually after their second or third win).
