How do we create our College Football Power Rankings?

* Power Rankings for College Football are updated at the conclusion of each weeks play. Ranks are based on rolling past 10 games overall, early in the season, this date range reaches back to regular-season games of the previous year.

Is the worst team in the tough SEC better than the top team in the not-so-tough Sun Belt Conference? If they were playing, would you bet the 0-6 team from the SEC or the 6-0 team from the Sun Belt? Standings won't tell you all you need to know to make that bet. And while college football power rankings won't provide a perfect answer either, it will get you a lot closer to a true comparison of those teams so you can study the point spread more effectively.

Different teams in different conferences have different tendencies and strengths, most of which are revealed at OddsShark.com in many of our comparative stats. But a full, math-based comparison taking into account all the offense, defense, time of possession and other key stats can only be gathered in the NCAA football power rankings page. Compare it against the college football lines each day. See below the ratings chart for details on the math that underlies the rankings.

The SEC has produced the past five national college football champions and for good reason - it's the toughest conference in America. Teams emerging from a season of play there are battle-hardened and ready to pound the other BCS hopeful. That fact underpins the college football power rankings here at OddsShark.com. Not all teams or conferences are created equal so looking at the standings is simply a false view into which teams are strong and deserve your money each Saturday.

We crunch the usual NCAA football power stats like rushing yards, yards per rush, time of possession turnover differential, passing efficiency and more. We rate all 120 schools and rank and apply formulas based on their conference strength (a team rated first in the Conference USA might only be 67th overall while the last place team in the Big 12 might be 51st).

We do the same thing on the defensive side of the ball, factoring in run-stop effectiveness, defensive scoring, takeaways and passing yards allowed per game to come up with another set of power numbers. We merge those and apply a conference strength multiplier to even out the edges. What comes out the other side is a sometime controversial ranking of college football teams that nonetheless applies some science and math to the subject and helps you judge the best odds.

It's all designed to help you rate teams and find NCAA betting edges on the point spread or over under. Check it out all season long and win more wagers!
