College Football Week 1 Ratings and Rankings - Alabama clear #1

This week's ratings and rankings are now posted.

Alabama remains #1 after their convincing win, and Oklahoma State makes a big move up after their 84-0 win but is still over 2 ratings points behind.  LSU falls after their closer than expected win but is still well ahead of Oregon.  Baylor makes a big move up to #5 and Boise State, even though they lost and lose ratings points, stays at #6.  They are able to do this as Arkansas fell over 5 ratings points to #11 and no team other than Baylor was able to move ahead.

It is still very early, with just one game played we really know very little about the teams yet, but it is interesting to see some of the initial moves and indications.

The top-25 is below, full ratings on the site.
