College Football Week 18 Ratings and Rankings -

This week's ratings and rankings are now posted.  These ratings are through the 12/31 bowl games.

Most of the top teams are still to play their bowl game, so there aren't radical moves in the top-25, but we can begin to see the effect of the results of games closely related to the top teams.  The SEC was supposed to go 2-1 but Auburns big win has buoyed the SEC teams ratings a touch which has moved Arkansas ahead of Boise State who was hurt a fraction by Tulsa's loss.  The Big-12 has also improved a bit with a 5-1 record thus far and they now have 5 of the top-16 teams and 7 of the top-20 teams.

The regular algorithm top-25 is below, the full rankings on the web-site.
