    How do you even rank teams that haven’t played versus teams that have played 5 times. Like what has BYU beating up the easiest schedule in CFB outside of Liberty lend them to being ahead of say Oregon who hasn’t played a game like in the OP?

    You can hate on it. They were never in trouble that game and think they were sleep walking because 1 of their 2 biggest games of the year was the Friday after. Every team has a bad game.

    I know it might sound crazy because they got fucked hard with the schedule changes. And they won’t get the credit this year because of how weak the schedule is.

    I did not watch that game but winning over utsa by 7 seems like a game that you are in deep shit for 60 minutes.

    It was a 1-score game for 13 minutes of the 4th quarter.

    Looking forward to their super bowl matchup against 5-loss Auburn in the Who Gives A Shit Bowl.

    I don’t understand your hate for them.

    But I agree with your point, sometimes these group of 5 teams might be able to compete with the Top 5. Then they get an opponent in a bowl game that has no interest in being there. You never know how good they are.

    I still think the best Non Power 5 team in the past 10 years was Kaepernicks Nevada team

    I need to see more from Ohio State but right now I think the gap between Clemson and Bama is pretty big too.

    My personal gambling numbers, I have Clemson as 6 point favorites over Bama on neutral field

    I really like Cincys team as well. My numbers have BYU as 5 points better though. My ratings have Cincy as #11.

    Cincinnati should and will get more love because of SOS.

    There is a major difference in Rankings and Ratings to me.
