College Rankings (11/9/2014)

Last Updated: 11/16/2014 12:34 PM ET

Not only does the Predictalator run every upcoming game 50,000 times, it plays every team against every other team to come up with the ultimate Power Rankings. The Predictalator is successful because it best accounts for actual matchups and team's abilities to exploit opponent's weaknesses using strength-of-schedule-adjusted statistics, so the Power Rankings are not necessarily the best way to know who would win between two teams. They are, however, the best possible way to measure which teams have put together the most impressive seasons. The best team may not be favored against the second-best team, but it would be favored more significantly against the rest of the teams in the sport.

To build the college football Power Rankings below, we "played" every team against every other team 50,000 times each and ranked by overall winning percentage of those games. These Power Rankings are as of (11/9/2014) rosters and projected depth charts.

In addition to the college football Power Rankings, we have also included each team's overall Offensive and Defensive rankings as well as Pass and Rush efficiency rankings relative to the league based on our strength-of-schedule-adjusted statistics and current rosters.
