I’ve decided to simplify this. The last couple of years I kept track of how teams playing ranked teams did and how ranked teams did against unranked teams. The latter was too heavily influenced by schools that set up their non-conference schedules with uncompetitive opponents. It also took too much of my time. I’ll stick to keeping track of how teams did against ranked teams. The formula is to give teams points based on the ranking of the team they paid: 25 points for playing a #1 ranked team, 24 for #2, 23 for #3, down to 1 point for playing #25. (A shortcut: subtract the number of the ranking from 26). Then you add in the net point differential of the game.

Examples: Central Michigan lost to #12 Oklahoma State 44-58. The Chips get 14 points for playing the #12 team but lose 14 for losing to that team 44-58. Net points: Zero. I’ll still list them because they’ve played a ranked team but their point total is zero. West Virginia lost to #17 Pittsburgh 31-38. They get 9 points for playing the #17 team but lost 7 points for the game result for a net of 2 points. Let’s see who had the best result each week and who accumulates the most points over the season.

WEEK 3
Oregon beat #12 Brigham Young 41-20 = +35 points
Washington beat #11 Michigan State 39-28 = +26 points
Texas A&M beat #13 U of Miami 17-9 = +21 points
Liberty lost to #19 Wake Forest 36-37 = +6 points
Missouri State lost to #10 Arkansas 27-38 = +5 points
South Florida lost to #18 Florida 28-31 = +5 points
Texas Tech lost to #16 North Carolina State 14-27 = -3 points
Louisiana Tech lost to #5 Clemson 20-48 = -7 points
Fresno State lost to #7 Southern California 17-45 = -9 points
Youngstown State lost to #9 Kentucky 0-31 = -14 points
Nebraska lost to #6 Oklahoma 14-49 = -15 points
San Diego State lost to #14 Utah 7-35 = -16 points
South Carolina lost to #1 Georgia 7-48 = -16 points
Texas- San Antonio lost to #21 Texas 20-41 = -16 points
Western Michigan lost to #23 Pittsburgh 13-34 = -18 points
Brigham Young lost to #25 Oregon 20-41 = -20 points
Auburn lost to #22 Penn State 12-41 = -25 points
Louisiana-Monroe lost to #2 Alabama 7-63 = -32 points
Toledo lost to #3 Ohio State 21-77 = -33 points
Georgia Tech lost to #20 Mississippi 0-42 = -36 points
Connecticut lost to #4 Michigan 0-59 = -37 points
Arkansas-Pine Bluff lost to #8 Oklahoma State 7-63 = -38 points
Akron lost to #15 Tennessee 6-63 = -46 points

(I’ll be glad when the conference seasons begin and we can get rid of the Akrons and the Arkansas Pine Bluffs)

Syracuse has yet to play a ranked team. The worst performance against ranked teams so far is that of Akron, (-86).

The weekly best performances:
WEEK 1 Georgia beat #11 Oregon 49-3 = +61 points
WEEK 2 Kentucky beat #12 Florida 26-16 = +24 points
And Texas lost to #1 Alabama 19-20 = +24 points
WEEK 3 Oregon beat #12 Brigham Young 41-20 = +35 points

(Oregon was the victim of the west Week 1 performance and gave the best week 3 performance.)


The top ten single game performances:
WEEK 1 Georgia beat #11 Oregon 49-3 = +61 points
WEEK 3 Oregon beat #12 Brigham Young 41-20 = +35 points
WEEK 1 Ohio State beat #5 Notre Dame 21-10 = +32 points
WEEK 3 Washington beat #11 Michigan State 39-28 = +26 points
WEEK 2 Kentucky beat #12 Florida 26-16 = +24 points
WEEK 2 Texas lost to #1 Alabama 19-20 = +24 points
WEEK 2 Appalachian State beat #6 Texas A&M 17-14 = +23 points
WEEK 2 Brigham Young beat #9 Baylor 26-20 = +23 points
WEEK 2 Marshall beat Notre Dame 26-21 = +23 points
WEEK 1 Florida beat #7 Utah 29-26 = +22 points

(Georgia lost 15 guys to the NFL but they look as good as they did last year.)
