College Football Top 25: Post-Week 8

Sports

Below is the top 25 now that week 8 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: Florida State’s “Improve+” is 3, which means, after eight weeks, they are averaging 3% of improvement in their “Total+” rating 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.
