Note:

All of the above rankings are taken directly from the NCAA except for strength of schedule, which is not ranked by the NCAA and instead taken from team rankings.

The Redzone TD% and Redzone TD% Defense are calculated by me and not ranked by the NCAA. Determining who has the advantage in these categories is strictly my arbitrary judgment.

Quick thoughts:

Yes, there’s a lot of Hawkeyes up there. And no, I don’t like it either. It seems like almost everything from last year’s grid was flipped, and that’s not a good thing. But alas, welcome to this season.

I changed everything within my power to change last week, every article of clothing, what I ate, what I drank, where I sat. None of it worked, so I’ve got nothing. Let’s just try to enjoy football while we have it this year, I guess?
