College Football Rankings: Week 2

College Football Rankings: Week 2

Tuesday, the College Football Playoff Committee will release its rankings.

Let’s get out in front of things with the “Franchise Rankings,” full of flaws and the kind of thing that is certainly biased against your favorite school.

Ready to do the math? Here’s the formula.

Win – 2 points

Win over ranked team – 1 point

Loss to unranked AP Top 25 team (-1)

Loss to ranked AP Top 25 opponent – (-0.5)

0.25 points – for each win over a team currently ranked in AP Top 25 that wasn’t at time of game.

(-0.25) – for each win against a team team that isn’t currently ranked in AP Top 25 but was at time of game.

For example: Oklahoma is 8-1. That’s 16 points for the eight wins. Give OU 1 more point for its win against Ohio State and 1 more point for beating Oklahoma State. Subtract 1 for its loss to then-unranked Iowa State and then add 0.25 for Iowa State getting into the rankings at a later date. Total = 17.25

(last week’s Franchise Ranking)

1. Georgia (1) – 20

3. Clemson (4) – 18.5

3. Notre Dame (4) – 18.5

5. Wisconsin (3) – 18

6. TCU (6) – 17.5

7. Oklahoma (8) – 17.25

8. Miami (12) – 17
