Back at number one for the first time since 2009, the Horned Frogs will begin the second half of the 2010 season as the most dominant team in the nation.
Here they are: ranked by adding each team's national ranks in scoring offense and scoring defense, the top 25 most dominant teams in the country, through six games.
|13.||San Diego St.|
|21.||North Carolina St.|
Jumping out first are Missouri (7) and San Diego State (13). Mizzou barely cracks the top 20 in the major polls this week, and SDSU doesn't even register in the "also receiving votes" category. The Aztecs were favored to beat BYU in Provo this week, and very nearly did so (some home cooking from the refs, and a strong running game, helped BYU maintain its winning streak over SDSU).
Despite coming within a safety of 70 points against Iowa State, the Utes fell from the top of the Dominance Ranking, because they allowed 27 points to the Cyclones.
Baylor sneaking into the top 25 is notable; the Bears have not had an annual Dominance Ranking higher than 84 in at least ten years. Clearly they are a competitive team again-- when playing teams not called TCU.
