College Football Power Rankings | NCAAFB Power Ratings Week 5

College Football Power Rankings | NCAAFB Power Ratings Week 5

Below are my college football power ratings for week five of the college football season. There has been some definite movement this week, especially after Oklahoma’s tight win on the road against the Baylor Bears, and the Penn State Nittany Lions barely escaping Kinnick Stadium with a win, late on Saturday night.

At the top of the list, the usual suspects are there, with Bama and Clemson topping the rankings. Bama did a lot to solidify this spot this past weekend, after the Crimson Tide beat up on the Vandy Commodores, letting the College Football world know they are still the team to beat.
The one ranking in the top ten I’m not sure on is USC. I’m having a hard time ranking the Trojans this season, because I know they are good…but just how good?

As always, when setting a line using these rankings, subtract the two numbers, add 3 for the home field and there is your starting point. I emphasize the starting point fact as injuries, weather, travel all need to be factored in and your line adjusted accordingly.
