|Main||Ranking Explanation||Supporting the Site||221201|
Both formula rankings are included in Kenneth Massey's
Ranking Comparison (code DKC is the MOV rankings, code Sonas
is the BCS-compliant / non-MOV rankings.)
These rankings are also listed in the College Football Data Warehouse under the topic of National Championships, Current National Championship Selectors.
These ratings have a very high success rate in deciding the National Champion, only missing in years 1983 (Auburn instead of Miami, FL) and 1989 (Notre Dame instead of Miami, FL). In years where the National Champion was split between two teams (1990, 1991, 1997, 2003), these ratings selected at least one of the two teams. Note: National champions weren't officially determined until 1889. DKC success rate does not take into consideration any mythical champions pre-1889.
Ratings are usually updated on Monday mornings (all things considered).
