TRS College Football Rankings after Week 6

We got a good slate of games this last week.  With the conference seasons really firing up, we starting to separate the wheat from the chafe. 

What did we learn?

Well, Maryland is not near a complete team.

Northwestern is a legitimate Big 10 contender, or were before they lost a tough one to the Buckeyes.

OU is a different team with Blake Bell at quarterback.

Georgia State's AD is a sadist who scheduled a vicious gauntlet for his young program.

These games did give us a bit of a shuffle in the rankings, so without further ado........

TRS College Football Rankings

1 Florida State 5 5 2.75 208
2 Alabama 5 5 3 124
3 Oregon 5 5 2.25 237
4 Clemson 5 5 2.75 138
5 Ohio State 6 6 2.75 148
6 Stanford 5 5 3 90
7 LSU 5 6 3.25 125

10 Washington 4 5 3 96
11 UCLA 4 4 2.25 111
12 Florida 4 5 3.25 69
13 South Carolina 4 5 3.75 26
14 Missouri 6 6 2.25 138
15 Texas Aggies 4 5 2.75 92
16 Texas Tech 5 5 2 141
17 Baylor 4 4 1.5 217
18 Michigan 5 5 2.25 97
19 Oklahoma 5 5 2.25 91
20 Virginia Tech 5 6 3 47
21 Auburn 4 5 3 42
22 Nebraska 4 5 2.5 85
24 Michigan State 4 5 2.5 74
25 Notre Dame 4 6 3.75 17
25 Ball State 5 6 2.25 101
27 Louisville 5 5 1.5 188
28 Northwestern 4 5 2.5 60
29 Bowling Green 5 6 2.25 92
30 Fresno State 5 5 2 70

Now, as much as I would like to believe it, I don't expect that Florida State will be the best team at the end of the season.  But then again, if they can knock off Clemson in a few weeks, who is going to stop them?  The Driskel-less Gators would really be the only scary game left. 

That said, they have owned everyone they faced.  Not Squeaked by, not beat solidly, but dominated.  So, they get credit for that and sit at the top for a week.

Conference numbers after 6 weeks:

SEC: 8
BIG TEN: 5
PAC-12: 5
ACC: 4
BIG 12: 3
MAC: 2
AAC: 1
INDEPENDENT: 1
MWC: 1

So, the world is largely as we would have expected it.  The SEC is still king, with the PAC-12 and ACC on their heels.  The BIG TEN has better numbers in the rankings that a lot would expect, but it is a league without much at the top.  There is only 1 team in the top 15 (Ohio State).  The ACC and PAC-12 combine for one team less than the SEC has but they have 7 of the 11 teams in the rankings.  It will be interesting to see what happens as we continue into the depth of conference schedule with those teams when they have to play each other.
