Top 25 Teams for Week 9

FBS Week 9 Top 25

After correctly predicting 43 of 61 FBS match-ups in Week 8, we’re taking a new publishing approach to Week 9.

With every passing week we’re trying new formats & approaches. We wish we could do all of it always, but the truth is, this stuff takes a lot of time. The weekly cycle of the season + normal life has slowed our build, but we are finally getting individual team pages online, almost as good as promised (and not bad for Phase I).

This list is meant to focus on those newly-created team pages, and will represent 25 of the first 26 team pages that we generate (lucky you, #145 Arkansas).



For Newcomers:
As Hierank’s straight ranking formula matures week-over-week, rather than be caught up in perceived inconsistencies below, we encourage you to follow each linked team to see how the ranking came to be.
