CSD Resume Rankings & Computer Rankings Week 9

In honor of the first College Football Playoff Top 25 being revealed on Tuesday, I decided to take a crack at building a computer model that ranked the top 25 “most deserving” teams as opposed to the best teams like my normal model does.

#1 – Alabama (8-0)
#2 – Clemson (8-0)
#3 – Notre Dame (8-0)
#4 – Michigan (7-1)
#5 – Oklahoma (7-1)
#6 – Ohio State (7-1)
#7 – Georgia (7-1)
#8 – LSU (7-1)
#9 – UCF (7-0)
#10 – Penn State (6-2)
#11 – Kentucky (7-1)
#12 – Washington State (7-1)
#13 – Fresno State (7-1)
#14 – Washington (6-3)
#15 – West Virginia (6-1)
#16 – Utah (6-2)
#17 – UAB (7-1)
#18 – Texas (6-2)
#19 – Utah State (7-1)
#20 – Boise State (6-2)
#21 – Texas A&M (5-3)
#22 – Wisconsin (5-3)
#23 – Houston (7-1)
#24 – Virginia (6-2)
#25 – Georgia Southern (7-1)

Alright, now it is time for the CSD Computer Rankings. The model is predictive and forward-looking, not recursive and resume based. It is meant to predict who would win if two teams played tomorrow, and so as the season moves on, early season results are counted less and less (See: Michigan ahead of Notre Dame)
