2022 College Football Power Ratings

Last updated: Wednesday, January 11, 2023 - final ratings I will be updating this page by each Monday night during the season. These ratings are based on a mathematical formula which includes several factors, including win-loss record, schedule strength, and margin of victory in games. The most recent games are counted with more slightly emphasis than those played earlier in the season. The strength of schedule ranking shown here is vs. all opponents and is the ranking among the 261 teams in these ratings. The strength of schedule ranking reflects only games played so far during the season, not future opponents. SS = strength of schedule ranking among all Division I teams (1 is strongest and 261 is weakest) * = record contains forfeits ** = ineligible for conference championship or postseason play
