NCAA FCS College Football Ratings


Below are listed the current NCAA FCS college football ratings as computed by the Donchess Inference Index.
More information on how these NCAA computer ratings are computed can be found on the Methodology page.

DII Rating– This is a NCAA football ratings system that is a combination of the Standard Rating and the Aegis Rating. The Aegis Rating is weighted more highly in the beginning of the season whereas the Standard Rating is weighted more highly at the end of the season. This is the final rating that is used to rank the teams.

Standard Rating– Looks at date, game outcome and score differential only. Record is the most important factor in this rating system.

Aegis Rating– Replacing the Inference Rating, this heavily weights the outcomes of opponents’ games and relies on more historical data. This is system is a much better predictor of future game outcomes than the Standard Rating.
