2014 College Football Rankings, 4 Flavors

MP Ranking Varieties after Week 15

This table presents four varieties of Massey-Peabody rankings.

  • “Priors” are our priors, i.e., the full Massey-Peabody model before the season began.
  • “In Season” is what our model would look like without any priors at all, i.e., considering only data from the current season.
  • “Hybrid” uses only in-season data for each team (no priors), but includes priors when evaluating their opponents’ strength.
  • “Full” are the complete, current Massey-Peabody rankings (a combination of Priors and In-Season).

NOTE: These table columns are sortable. Click the header of any column to sort that column. Click once to sort data ascending. Click again to sort descending.
