Division I-A College Football Performance Ratings 1/4/99

This are the final ratings for the 1998 season. Tennessee is, of course, first. However, Ohio State is not second.

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