Taking an in-depth look at the best "Mid-Major" teams in College Football since the BCS began (2009-1998)...
Accounting for more than just win-loss records... Weighing Strength of Schedule; quality of wins vs scoring margin... Considering individual greatness within the context of a team sport...
These are the Top 10 Best non-BCS Teams in the BCS Era.
This list will be updated after Boise State wins the 2010 National Championship.
Keys & Notes:
Strength of Schedule (SOS) - This is an approximate average ranking of teams' SOS based on the BCS rating systems: Sagarin, Anderson & Hester (A&H), Colley, Billingsley (Bills), Massey -- (some rankings not available)
All-Conference Teams - Players' selection to future years' All-Conference Teams are not noted, only current and past selections (in parenthesis) are noted. Players' seleciton to future All-America Teams are noted [in brackets] along with current and past selections .
Consideration is limited to College Football. The NFL/Pro Football carries no weight in this deliberation.
