:: 2018 :: 2017 :: 2016 :: 2015 :: 2014 :: 2013 :: 2012 :: 2011 :: 2010 :: 2009 :: 2008 :: 2007

 

Strength of Schedule Ratings are a function of the current FEI ratings of a given team's schedule of FBS opponents and the location (home/away/neutral) of each game. Teams are ordered by EL ratings, representing the average number of losses an elite team (two standard deviations better than average) would have against the schedule. GL ratings represent the average number of losses a good team (one standard deviation better than average) would have against the schedule. AL ratings represent the average number of losses an average team would have against the schedule. Game counts in the given team's schedule against FEI top 10 opponents (v10), top 20 opponents (v20), top 30 opponents (v30), top 40 opponents (v40), and top 50 opponents (v50) are provided. Strength of schedule ratings considering regular season opponents only are provided in the REL (expected elite team losses), RGL (good team), and RAL (average team) columns.

Ratings and supporting data are calculated from the results of non-garbage possesssions in FBS vs. FBS games.
