The undefeateds

Posted by cuorange on October 15, 2009

The power rankings below are based on 15 statistical categories that have proven over the last 9 years to determine the BCS Champion, with the highly correlated statistics (such as total defense and scoring defense) weighted more heavily.

A score of 1.000 would be a perfect score and if a team has a power ranking of .903, this means that the team is playing at 90.3% efficiency.

It’s important to understand that these rankings look at past performance and are not a predictor of future games, i.e. I am not saying South Florida would beat Texas. I’m saying South Florida has played better than Texas to this point of the year.

Rank Team Power
1 Alabama .938
2 South Florida .8943
3 Florida .8937
4 Texas .866
5 Boise State .862
6 Cincinnati .810
7 TCU .748
8 Iowa .700
9 Kansas .660

South Florida and Cincinnati battle it out tonight and one will be dropped from this list next week.
