College Football Performance Ratings 1/2/97

This list includes Divisions I-A and I-AA ranked together.

A team's rating is the average of its opponents' ratings plus 100 for a win or minus 100 for a loss excluding wins that would lower the rating and losses that would raise the rating. Post-season games count double. These ratings are in the public domain and may be freely published.
