Ballot Type: computer

Overall Rationale:
Caveat: These are technically provisional rankings because ESPN did something stupid to break their API again, and there were some decidedly odd results this week.

Rank Team Reason
1 Georgia Bulldogs The computer rankings "randomly" decided to move Division II Harding up from #131 (still top of D2, but...) to #23 (gaining about 16 points) this week based on a 16 point win over an unranked team in the first round of the D2 playoffs. Coincidentally, the Great American Conference doesn't play any non-conference games. I'm sure anyone familiar with SRS can see the problem.
2 Ohio State Buckeyes (For some godforsaken reason Harding only gained 7.78 points in actual SRS, so my "tweaks" managed to make that problem even worse...)
3 Michigan Wolverines
4 Alabama Crimson Tide
5 Oklahoma State Cowboys
6 Notre Dame Fighting Irish
7 Wisconsin Badgers
8 Cincinnati Bearcats
9 Penn State Nittany Lions
10 Utah Utes
11 Oklahoma Sooners
12 Michigan State Spartans
13 Iowa Hawkeyes
14 Ole Miss Rebels
15 Baylor Bears
16 Oregon Ducks
17 Purdue Boilermakers
18 Texas A&M Aggies
19 Clemson Tigers
20 Wake Forest Demon Deacons
21 NC State Wolfpack
22 Boise State Broncos
23 Pittsburgh Panthers
24 Iowa State Cyclones
25 BYU Cougars The highest FCS is North Dakota State at #38, up from #44 last week.
