Colley Matrix Rankings, Week 1


For those that are familiar with the BCS, you may recall that one of the computer rankings that is used is the Colley Matrix. To make a long story short, I read up on how he made the rankings and reproduced the algorithm for CAN football purposes. If you really want to read up on it, go to this link.

<edit> I'm not including the results of forfeits in these rankings. The rationale being that you don't really gain any insight into how 'good' or 'bad' a team is if they didn't play.</edit>

That being said, here are your CAN Colley Matrix Rankings through Week 1.

Re: Colley Matrix Rankings


Since we probably won't be there again this year after Sunday, I just wanted to point out that it is nice to see Minnesota on top of a football ranking.
