College Football News Rankings 1-130: After Week 8

By


The College Football News 2019 college football rankings after Week 8.


As always, the rankings are done by the results as much as humanly possible.

For example, Tulsa might be 2-5, but those five losses came to Michigan State, Oklahoma State, SMU, Navy and Cincinnati – all teams ranked relatively high. The Golden Hurricane beat Wyoming, who not only beat Missouri, but whose only other loss is to a highly-ranked San Diego State.

Long story short, Tulsa is ranked way too high for a reason.

For most of this, though, it’s no longer humanly possible to go by the season-long results. The ACC, MAC and Pac-12 are too much of a mess now, so most of those are by a combination of what happened this week, and trying to be honest about how good the teams really appear to be.

And then there are the upsets. Illinois gets bumped up, Georgia Tech gets a big push, and Vanderbilt has to go up to a point. That raises up teams like UNLV, who whacked the Commodores in Nashville last week.

As always, November comes around and most of this goes into judgement call mode. But for now, yes, it’s a mish-mosh of methods to put this puzzle together.

As always, if you have an issue or a question about a ranking, go ahead and tweet us @ColFootballNews and we’ll try to figure it out/explain. If you see something that looks REALLY off, look at the schedule and follow the trail from there – or notice the one horrific loss or wildly big win.
