There are some immense contrasts between the last AP Top 25 College Football Poll, and the Final Sagarin College Football Ratings.
For openers, here is the AP Top 25 Poll as casted a ballot by the country’s sportswriters and sports telecasters: 1 Louisiana State, 2 Georgia, 3 Southern California, 4 Missouri, 5 Ohio State, 6 West Virginia, 7 Kansas, 8 Oklahoma, 9 Virginia Tech, 10 Boston College and Texas (tie), 12 Tennessee, 13 Florida, 14 Brigham Young, 15 Auburn, 16 Arizona State, 17 Cincinnati, 18 Michigan, 19 Hawaii, 20 Illinois, 21 Clemson, 22 Texas Tech, 23 Oregon, 24 Wisconsin, and 25 Oregon State.
Here is the Sagarin Ratings: 1 Louisiana State, 2 Kansas, 3 West Virginia, 4 Southern California, 5 Oklahoma, 6 Missouri, 7 Georgia, 8 Oregon, 9 Virginia Tech, 10 Florida, 11 Ohio State, เซียนโต๊ะบอล 12 Texas, 13 Auburn, 14 Arizona State, 15 Tennessee, 16 Oregon State, 17 Brigham Young, 18 Kentucky, 19 Cincinnati, 20 South Florida, 21 Michigan, 22 Clemson, 23 Boston College, 24 Texas Tech, and 25 Arkansas.

2) Sagarin rates Georgia much lower (seventh instead of second), Ohio State a lot of lower (eleventh as opposed to fifth) and Boston College much lower (23rd as opposed to tenth).
3) Sagarin has 3 groups in the main 25 that the AP Poll doesn’t Kentucky at 18, South Florida at 20 and Arkansas at 25. The AP Poll replaces these groups with Hawaii at 19, Illinois at 20 and Wisconsin at 24.
Which survey is more precise? All things considered, the AP Poll depends on one’s assessment of a group, its record and the quality of its adversary. Sagarin depends on a numerical recipe including insights aggregated by a MIT graduate (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). You choose.
