One More Arbitrary NCAA Football Ranking Scheme for the BCS – 11/1/2011

Rankings as of 11/1/2011.  The previous week’s rankings are here.

I apologize for not getting these rankings out until today (Tuesday), but we’re likely without power until Friday or Saturday.  I’m currently in the Western New England College University Law School library, which has power and heat.  Anyway……

There are 5 teams in the SITW top 25 that are not in the BCS top 25 (SITW Ranking):  Texas A&M (15), Texas Tech (18), USC (19), Baylor (21), Missouri (25).

Likewise, the five teams in the BCS top 25 that are not in the SITW top 25 are: Arizona State (26), Wisconsin (30), Michigan State (31), West Virginia (32), and Southern Miss (39).

Based on the disparity between the SITW rankings and the BCS rankings, the most over-rated top 25 BCS team is Boise State, followed by Michigan State and Southern Miss.  The most under-rated team is Texas, followed by Kansas State, Auburn, Oklahoma, and Clemson.
