BCS Top 10: How Good Are Your Opponents?

IconConsidering the combined records of opponents is one way to analyze the BCS rankings.

I have re-ranked here the BCS Top 10 based on the winning percentages of their I-A opponents (South Florida and Boston College have wins over I-AA teams), and noted how they've fared versus ranked teams.

Here are the new rankings:

1. Kentucky (6-1): 30-17, .638, 2-1 vs. ranked teams.

2. LSU (6-1): 29-18, .617, 3-1 vs. ranked teams.

T3. South Carolina (6-1): 27-21, .563, 2-1 vs. ranked teams.

T3. South Florida (6-0): 18-14, .563, 2-0 vs. ranked teams.

5. Oregon (5-1): 21-17, .552, 0-1 vs. ranked teams.

6. Oklahoma (6-1): 23-22, .511, 2-0 vs. ranked teams.

7. WVU (5-1): 18-21, .461, 0-1 vs. ranked teams.

8. Ohio State (7-0): 18-25, .419, 1-0 vs. ranked teams.

9. Arizona State (7-0): 19-27, .413, has played no ranked teams.

10. Boston College (7-0): 15-23, .395, 1-0 vs. ranked teams.

Not only is the competition keener in the SEC—the SEC teams’ out-of-conference schedules are tougher as well.

Ohio State, Boston College, and especially Arizona State have played no opponents of note to date.

A final note: WVU has the misfortune of having 0-6 Marshall on the schedule. Thanks, Gov. Joe Manchin!
