FSU No. 1; Oregon Moves Up To No. 4
November 16, 2014
As the only undefeated Power 5 conference school remaining, Florida State easily holds on to the top spot in the latest Congrove Computer Rankings, released early Sunday morning. Ohio State, Marshall and Oregon round out the top 4 as Mississippi State drops from 3rd to 7th.
Baylor and Alabama each move up a spot to 5th and 6th. Following Mississippi State are TCU, Georgia and Ole Miss.
Notable downward movers include Nebraska, which dipped from 9th to 16th, and Auburn, which dropped from 10th to 20th. Arizona State backpedaled from 11th to 18th, Notre Dame plunged from 17th to 26th, and Clemson slid from 16th to 27th.
Out of 128 teams in the FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision), just 9 schools have fewer than 2 losses. Only 7 of those are representatives from one of the Power 5 conferences (ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, PAC-12 and SEC).
The SEC still has 6 teams in the top 25, followed by the PAC-12 with 5. The Big 12 and Big Ten each have 4 schools while the ACC has just 3. The Mountain West has 2 teams in the top 25, and CUSA has 1.
Neither the American, MAC, Sun Belt or Independents have any schools in the top 25. The highest-ranked schools from those leagues are Notre Dame (Independent) at No. 26, UCF (American) at No. 30, Northern Illinois (MAC) at No. 31, and Louisiana-Lafayette (Sun Belt) at No. 43.
The Sun Belt and MAC own 7 of the bottom 8 spots.
