I’ll continue to keep track of how teams did against ranked teams. Just something to look at in evaluating teams. The formula is to give teams points based on the ranking of the team they played: 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: Navy lost to #13 Notre Dame 3-42. The Middies get 13 points for playing the #13 team but lose 39 for losing to that team 3-42. Net points: -26. Let’s see who had the best result each week and who accumulates the most points over the season.

WEEK 4
Oregon beat #19 Colorado 42-6 = +43
Penn State beat #24 Iowa 31-0 = +33
Alabama beat #15 Mississippi 24-10 = +25
Ohio State beat #9 Notre Dame 17-14 = +20
Notre Dame lost to #6 Ohio State 14-17 = +17
Clemson lost to #4 Florida State 24-31 = +15
Arkansas lost to #12 Louisiana State 31-34 = +11
Utah beat #22 UCLA 14-7 = +11
Washington State beat #14 Oregon State 38-35 = +9
UCLA lost to #11 Utah 7-14 = +8
Arizona State lost to #5 Southern California 28-42 = +7
Oregon State lost to #21 Washington State 35-38 = +2
Rutgers lost to #2 Michigan 7-31 = Even

Connecticut lost to #18 Duke 7-41 = -26
Temple lost to #20 U of Miami 7-41 = -28
Texas-San Antonio lost to #23 Tennessee 14-45 = -28

Comment: The season gets real now. Power 5 teams are playing Power 5 teams and ranked teams are playing ranked teams. It’s not about Directional State.
