WhatIfSports.com utilizes its NCAA football simulation to present the most comprehensive and unbiased ranking of all 124 FBS teams. We simulated thousands of games and used those winning percentages to evaluate every team.

All 124 teams are ranked below with their average points for and against from the simulated games.

Simulations are based on updated rosters and depth charts so significant week-to-week changes may occur once the regular season kicks off.
