The CFN ranking of all 130 teams – along with a few notes – after Week 9



Week 9 Scoreboard & Predictions: How Did The Picks Do?

So now what?

There are only five unbeaten teams left, along with a handful of one-loss teams with an honest shot of doing anything realistic in the College Football Playoff chase.

How do the teams get ranked after two months?

Head-to-head still matters – resume is still a big deal – but playing well at the right time matters, too. Teams might be playing stronger now – Arizona, Iowa State – and might be a whole lot better than they were in the first few weeks.

Trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together – looking at the entire picture of the season – from 130 to No. 1, here we go.
