CFN 2018 College Football Rankings: Week 5


The CFN 2018 college football rankings at the end of Week 5.


All done based on how good the teams appear to be right now and what happened on the field – and never on projection – where do all the teams rank after Week 5?

Now is when a big chunk of the A beat B, B beat C, so A is ahead of C way of ranking goes kablooey.

Last week, Old Dominion HAD to be ranked ahead of Virginia Tech. But Virginia Tech just beat Duke. Duke had rolled Northwestern. Northwestern beat Purdue, who beat Boston College, who beat UMass, who beat Charlotte, who beat …

Old Dominion.

Last week, it was all clean, and it all worked. Now that Virginia Tech has been released – in a way – from that loss to ODU, it can be ranked more on judgement, while also taking into account what has happened on the field.

However, just because BYU lost to Washington, and Cal – who beat BYU – lost to Oregon, that doesn’t give Wisconsin a free pass to be ranked ahead of the Cougars.

So for now … belief comes into play whenever there’s a chance, but when needed, the results of the season are still respected.
