The Massey computer composite

Every poll and rating smashed into one continually updating ranking, basically. Early in the season, it still includes some preseason projections. Usually starts updating Sunday morning.

  1. Clemson
  2. Alabama
  3. Georgia
  4. Michigan
  5. Penn State
  6. Washington
  7. Miami
  8. Oklahoma
  9. TCU
  10. USC (This is a collection that includes computer rankings, and computers often factor preseason rankings into their early ratings, to help stabilize things. That’s one reason USC ranks ahead of Washington State in this group, for example. That won’t be the case in the polls, once those come out, and might not be the case once Massey adds more ratings throughout Sunday.)

Georgia Overview

The Dawgs more than made up for the Hail Mary last year, pounding Tennessee in Neyland 41-0. The defense was opportunistic, and Chubb went for over 100 on offense. Georgia jumped to number 5 in the latest polls.

Movers

Fell Out: #24 Mississippi State, #25 LSU

Newcomers: #24 NC State, #25 UCF

Overrated

#11 Washington State

The victory over USC was statement worthy. However, Washington State will not be in the hunt come December.

Underrated

#21 Notre Dame

Half of this is because we beat them in South Bend. However, Notre Dame is looking like a good football team, and that victory is aging very well.

This Week’s Top 25 Matchups

#17 Louisville at #24 NC State

#23 West Virginia at #8 TCU

Upset Alert

Last week, I wrongly predicted ECU over USF to make it a losing streak of two.

This week, I’m going with a mild, solely Vegas based odds upset of South Carolina at home over Arkansas.
