College Football Top 25: Post-Week 3

Sports

Below is the top 25 now that week 3 has played out.

Please note that “Improve+” is NOT the difference between last weeks numerical ranking and this week’s. “Last Wk” is meant to show you where each team was ranked last week. “Improve+” (and the offensive and defensive variants of it), on the other hand, measures the average week to week improvement demonstrated by each team. An example: Oregon’s “Improve+” is 9, which means, after two weeks, they are averaging 9% of improvement in their “Total+” ranking from week-to-week. Obviously, numbers will get smaller as the weeks go on. My basic aim is to see which teams get stronger as the year goes on and which teams fall off a cliff.

    1. Sure. Teams can jump around early in the season as strength of schedule moves up and down due to so many teams playing cupcakes and trying to figure out just how good teams actually are. That levels out as the season goes on, but if Jameis Winston is for real, I would think they are likely a top 10 team.
