Group of 5 Power Rankings: Final

We've reached the end of college football's 150th season (151st? It was branded as "College Football 150" but starting in 1869 would make this year 151). The game has changed a lot since 1869, and "Group of 5" has only become a term in the past ten years. The conference that put six teams in... Continue Reading →

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Bowl Season

Congratulations to Memphis for earning the Group of 5's spot in the Cotton Bowl this year, and congratulations to Florida Atlantic, Miami (OH), Boise State, and Appalachian State on their conference championships as well. There's a lot more to a season than a conference championship, though, and we still have a top 15 that reflects... Continue Reading →

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Championship Week

It was a wild final week of the regular season, with a few conference races taking unexpected final turns. For some teams, this week brought jubilation from a berth in their conference championship game, a win over a rival, bowl eligibility secured, or multiple of those things. For others, this week brought heartbreak and/or questions... Continue Reading →

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Week 13

Not a lot of change at the top of this week's rankings for me, as Cincinnati escaped disaster against USF, Memphis and Appalachian State recovered after slow starts, two other top-10 Group of 5 teams had a bye week, and everything went pretty much as expected. To view last week's very similar rankings, click¬†here. The... Continue Reading →

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Week 12

College football got weird this week. Nick Saban looked outcoached, Minnesota hit 9-0 for the first time in over a century, Illinois got to bowl eligible, Indiana got ranked and the ACC fell to having just one ranked team. The AAC has four. I'm not saying the AAC is better than the ACC, but I'm... Continue Reading →

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Week 11

For the second straight year, Georgia Southern knocked off a ranked App State team. Last year, it was an embarrassing 34-14 loss in Statesboro, Georgia. This time, no one saw another upset coming in Boone, but the Eagles didn't care, knocking off the Mountaineers by a final score of 24-21. Georgia Southern now controls their... Continue Reading →

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Week 10

It was a big weekend in college football, but for many of the top Group of 5 teams, it was kind of a snoozefest. The UCF-Temple and Utah State-Air Force matchups ended up being disappointing, and though the Tulane-Navy game ended up a thriller and Memphis got all they could handle from Tulsa, it wasn't...

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Week 9

It was a week full of upsets, blowouts, and disappointments in college football this weekend, and we're here to try to look past that mess and see where the Group of 5's top teams stand heading into week nine. To view last week's rankings, that are very different than the list we have now, click¬†here.... Continue Reading →

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Week 8

The AAC is really trying to prove their point in calling themselves a "Power 6" conference as their top teams dominate these rankings. Though Boise State seems to control their own destiny to get to a New Years Six bowl game, if they went undefeated and SMU or Cincinnati won out you could make an... Continue Reading →
