College Football Top 25: Post-Week 5

Sports

Below is the top 25 now that week 5 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 8, which means, after two weeks, they are averaging 8% 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.
