  • college football poll - week 10

    Shockingly, Notre Dame’s win over 2-7 Navy is enough to vault them over the Georgia Bulldogs. I think one disadvantage of the coefficient of relationship algorithm the poll uses is that it rewards independents who play teams from lots of different conferences and thus have shorter “win” paths to more teams than teams that have only a small non-conference schedule.

    Meanwhile, still-unbeaten Cincinnati and UTSA bump Michigan down to #5, but the Wolverines are still ahead of also-unbeaten Oklahoma.
