College Football Power Rankings

2008 Pre-Season Ranking By Paul Bessire, WhatIfSports.com July 22nd, 2008

WhatIfSports simulated every possible matchup in the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) 100 times, and used the winning percentages from those 700,000+ games to deterministically evaluate all teams to come up with the best possible ranking of how every team compares to every other team. The inputs to the simulations are based on a rigorous analysis of each team that first considers strength-of-schedule-adjusted team and player ratings from 2007 and then makes modifications for 2008 based on returning starters (who, where and how many), expected progression of returning players in new roles, depth at each position and incoming recruits and transfers.

Check back August 11th when we begin unveiling projected scores for every FBS game as part of our comprehensive 2008 College Football Preview. The preview will also include conference standings, projected bowl matchups, updated power rankings and BCS results.
