NCAA Football rankings: October 9, 2017

This year I am posting composite rankings that combine several of the Markov chain based rankings I’ve worked on over the years. I do so by wrapping a Markov chain around the rankings to identify how to order teams when different ranking models disagree about rank. I’ll post my full rankings on the NCAAF rankings tab every week. These are how I rank the teams at present. I will post playoff forecasts starting next week.
