Dominance Ranking, Week 3

All that noise from Madison is the most Dominant team in the nation (after three weeks).
All that noise from Madison is the most Dominant team in the nation (after three weeks).


The Dominance Ranking (sum of national ranks in scoring offense and scoring defense) is beginning to show some meaningful comparisons. The emphasis is on "beginning to," because after three weeks some teams have either only played the heavyweights on their schedules (like Troy or North Texas), and some only the creampuffs (like Texas Tech). But many have now had a sampling of both, and the results are not as otherworldly as the first two weeks' rankings.

The top 25 are listed here; 26 through 120 below the jump.

1 Wisconsin
2 Stanford
2 Texas Tech
4 Alabama
4 Arkansas
4 Texas A&M
7 Western Mich.
8 Florida
9 Ohio
10 South Fla.
11 Virginia Tech
12 Florida St.
13 Missouri
14 UCF
15 Georgia Tech
15 LSU
17 Illinois
18 West Virginia
19 Oregon
20 Rutgers
21 Cincinnati
22 California
23 Oklahoma
24 Bowling Green
25 Temple
25 Washington St.

Surprises? Western Michigan may stay high in this poll, but Rutgers, Bowling Green, and Washington State probably are not.
