2016 Final Conference Rankings

22 Feb

The bowl season either wrecked havoc on the standings, or it settled the conferences in their appropriate ranking.  I suppose it depends on how your conference did in the rankings, when it comes to how you look at these final results.

Three conferences fell in the rankings – none more dramatic than the Big 10, which suffered through a terrible bowl season losing seven games.  The American and Mid-American Conferences also suffered, as did the SEC.  The SEC’s climb in the ranking was due to the decline of the Big 10 over that of the SEC’s on-field performance.

The Big 12 was able to climb into the top five based on their impressive bowl performance and the failure of the American Conference.

The big news in the ACC dominated the bowl season which led to a relatively huge margin of victory in the conference standings.  They finished with a victory margin over three tenths higher, which is a huge margin in these rankings that are all based on on-field performance.

How did your conference do?

2016 Conference Rankings Week 13

1 Dec

Is the SEC about to be dethroned from it’s perch atop the college football world?  They went up against the ACC this week and if it hadn’t been for Kentucky, they would have been swept.  Those wins by the ACC propelled them past the Big 10 and the SEC into first place.  Those losses by the SEC dropped them all the way down to third place. Bowl season will determine the top conference now, but it looks like this may be the year the SEC loses its crown.

2016 Conference Ranking Week 3

6 Nov

More shifting this week after the on-field results had the Big 10 overtaking first place as they switched places with the third ranked conference – The ACC.  The Big 12 barely climbed above the Mt. West and the American Conference continues to impress as they have crashed the Power 5 party.  Let’s see if they can stay there.

2016 Week Two Conference

16 Sep

This week some things shook out.  The two most notable things is the SEC isn’t as down as feared and the Big 12 is down way more than anyone thought.  Also, notice that the American, formerly Big East, Conference is more than holding its own.  Suddenly, the Power 5 doesn’t appear to be all that powerful.

2016 Week Two

  1. ACC = 1.181
  2. SEC = 1.136
  3. Big 10 = 1.074
  4. American = .909

  6. MWC = .480

  8. C-USA = -086
  9. MAC = -.130
  10. Sun Belt = -.200
