2001 BCS Ratings

Polls/Ratings through dates

  • Through 11/3: AP, Coaches, Matthews, Rothman, Sagarin, Wolfe, Anderson-Hester, Billingsley, Colley, Massey.

    Rankings as of 10/29

    Notes

  • Shaded teams are currently BCS-eligible.
  • Records reflect wins over Division I-A opponents only and all losses, regardless of opponent.
  • Computer rankings are relative to other Division I-A teams only.
  • "-" means a team is unrated or unpublished in that poll/rating.
  • Only teams that appear in both the AP and Coaches polls will appear in the "Rated Teams" section.
  • I have added three columns to the grid right after the school name: ABCS (BCS Rating adjusted for quality wins), QW (Quality win bonus), and BRank (Ranking for purpose of calculating the quality win bonus). BRank is only given for the teams for which the bonus would apply.
  • The first four computer ranking columns are for the systems that include margin of victory and the last four are for the systems that ignore it.
  • I am able to duplicate Colley's rankings. He posted the formula on his site. As a result, after mid-week games I'll be able to update his rankings.
  • The best computer ranking for each team is in blue and the worst is in red. The best and worst rankings (only one instance of each in the event of ties) are thrown out before calculating the computer average.
  • I've added another new column to indicate a team's ranking in the computer average category. The team with the best computer average will have a rank of 1, and so on.

    Unrated Teams

    BCS3 is the BCS formula without the polls. It's the Computer average + SOS factor + Losses. Since the polls are left out, some of these numbers will be smaller than the rated teams. Don't be confused by that.
