The Sagarin College Football Ratings: What They Are, How to Read Them and What to Do With Them

 by: Ed Bagley

Following the first week of college football action, here are some facts that interested me about Sagarin’s first-week ratings:

1) Washington, one of the poor to mediocre teams in the country the last several years, was rated No. Now you can better understand why La Salle College is ranked last among 242 Division I schools.

USA Today, the largest circulation newspaper in the United States, is the nation’s daily newspaper and carries the Sagarin College Football Ratings. 31 after hammering Syracuse 42-14 in its home opener.

Ursinus College is not a Division 1 school (which includes the 242 teams with La Salle), not a Division II team (which includes another 157 teams), but a Division III team. 143 after its opening loss) and Buffalo (ranked No. The worst-rated AA school is the No. The win was the biggest upset in college football history as no AA team had ever beaten a ranked team.

5) Notre Dame, beaten badly (33-3) by Georgia Tech, was rated No. La Salle is a Catholic university located in Philadelphia.

The Explorers next job will be to actually win a game. 57 after the loss. 242 La Salle Explorers. The worst-rated A school is Florida International at No. 145 after its opening loss) face off in week two. The home edge will vary during the season.

For those who wager, it may be helpful to put some science on your side when you wager, and one of the best places to do that is with the Sagarin College Football Ratings.

Created by Jeff Sagarin, a 1970 MIT mathematics graduate, these computer ratings are for Division I-A (what the NCAA now calls the Football Bowl (FB) Subdivision) and Division I-AA (what the NCAA now calls the Football Championship (FC) Subdivision) teams.

The BCS (Bowl Championship Series) does not factor in scoring margin. 41 by Sagarin following its 23-3 home victory over Virginia.

2) Michigan State, another short end of the stick team for far too long, was rated No. Georgia Tech was rated No. Following its horrendous loss, Michigan ended up being ranked No. 40 by Sagarin.

If there is a way for the NCAA to assert its superior power, it does so by making everything more difficult and confusing, similar to your United States government and its IRS tax code which could reduce a sane person to tears just reading it.

Only Division I (both A and AA) are counted for rating and schedule strength during the season.
