Isaac Luber's Unofficial BCS Rankings: Week Nine

Isaac LuberSenior Analyst IOctober 28, 2008

I grade teams on a scale to 1,000.  400 comes from performance of teams, 200 comes from record, 100 comes from strength of schedule, 100 comes from quality wins, 100 comes from conference strength, and 100 points are ones that every team gets, and points that good teams in weak conferences have so they can be in the Top 25 if they are good.

The numbers in parentheses and italics are last week's rankings.  The numbers that have decimals and are in parentheses are their percentages based on my scale, and LW is last week's results.

Here are my BCS rankings for Week Nine:

1) Penn State (2), (.998) LW-W 13-6 at Ohio State
