FSU No. 1; Oregon Moves To 3rd In Computer;
Coaches Reward 'Bama With No. 1 For Beating FCS Team
November 23, 2014
Florida State and Ohio State remain 1-2 in the CCR Top 128 (Congrove Computer Rankings). Oregon jumps Marshall for 3rd.
Things have gotten silly in the Coaches Poll where the voters jumped Alabama over Florida State. Apparently, the Tide's win over FCS member Western Carolina is more meaningful than Florida State fending off Boston College 20-17 for its 27th straight win. (See: Current Rankings Comparison).
Baylor, Alabama, Mississippi State and TCU all stay in place at Nos. 5 through 8 in the computer rankings.
Notable downward movers include Duke, which drops from 17th to 30th to exit the Top 25. USC also falls out with the loss to UCLA as the Trojans descend from 23rd to 34th. Nebraska plunges from 16th to 25th, and Ole Miss slips to 20th from 10th.
Arizona makes a big move up from 21st to 14th with its 42-10 crushing of Utah. Colorado State also reaps a big gain as the Rams climb from 22nd to 16th while fellow MWC members Boise State jumps from 25th to 19th.
Out of 128 teams in the FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision), 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). Colorado State (10-1) and Marshall (11-0) are the others.
The SEC keeps 6 teams in the top 25, followed by the 4 each from the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12 and PAC-12. 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 UCF (American) at No. 27, Northern Illinois (MAC) at No. 29, Notre Dame (Independent) at No. 37, and Louisiana-Lafayette (Sun Belt) at No. 57.
