College Football Rankings 1 To 130: Week 6. Back To Normal ... Sort Of

By

College Football News 2021 college football rankings after Week 6 for all 130 teams with results and who’s up next week.


After last week’s bizarre rankings – always based on the results on the field, at least as much as possible – now we released from a few things we had to do.

Sort of.

Now we get to take some of the outlier upsets and dismiss them a wee bit. For example …

Thank you, Akron. That win over Bowling Green means Minnesota – who inexplicably lost to the Falcons a few weeks ago – frees up a whole slew of A beat B beat C, etc. things. That was big.

Thank you, Tulsa. That win over Memphis helped change up a ton of parts – because now there are too many variables to simply go with Memphis beat Mississippi State, who beat Texas A&M, and on and on and on.

So if you see some wild swings in the rankings, that’s partly because one changed piece affected the entire puzzle.

Also, there are two theories we’re running with. We’ll give a few of the Big Ten teams a bit too much love for now, but overall, the belief is 1) the SEC is loaded even more than you might think, and 2) we don’t punish teams for losing to top teams.

You don’t get credit for passing the easy tests, and you don’t get dinged for struggling with the hard ones. As always, if you have a beef with the ranking, look at the schedule and follow it down the rabbit hole.

We’re getting there. At least compared to last week, these should be a bit closer to the pin.
