College Football News 2020 college football rankings after Week 7


And now is when everything blows up … sort of.

As always, the rankings are based as much as possible on the results on the field, honoring the wins and losses and trying to keep it all as clean as possible.

That’s why – unless something goes haywire, like a bunch of upset conference wins  by ULM or Texas State – the Sun Belt teams are likely going to be ranked ahead of the Big 12 teams the rest of the way out, because – with the current exception of an unbeaten Oklahoma State – they have to be.

Louisiana blew out Iowa State in Ames, Arkansas State beat Kansas State in Manhattan, and Coastal Carolina’s win over Kansas made it 3-0 in the conference vs. conference matchup. Now that it’s all about the league games for the Sun Belt and the Big 12.

However, in conference play, this gets way funky now. For example, have fun with the SEC: Kentucky rolled Tennessee, Tennessee beat South Carolina, South Carolina beat Auburn, Auburn beat Arkansas – sort of; here’s where judgement start to come into play – Arkansas beat Ole Miss, and to come all the way around … Ole Miss beat Kentucky.

The SEC playing a conference-only schedule means the rankings are going to change around massively every week. The same goes for the ACC after Florida State’s win over North Carolina sends everything else into a tailspin.

In other words, this is the week when the rankings aren’t all clean and easy anymore. It’s going to get even more fun with the Big Ten and Mountain West getting going this week.

As always, if you have a beef or question about any of these rankings, first look at the schedule – that’s where most of the answers are.
