Weekend Planning Guide – College Football Week 5

Martin Stadium, Pullman, Washington

Advanced Stats Composite Rankings

NOTE: The computer ratings are going to be a little weird until weeks 8-10 due to the hurricane cancellations. Florida St., for example, is probably rated too highly because the computers only have two games of data on them (compared with four for most other teams) which causes a higher reliance on their pre-season projections. Once the pre-season projections are phased out equally among all teams, we’ll get a better representation of where everyone is at.
