THE YPPSYS DIVISION I-A FBS PRE-BOWL COLLEGE FOOTBALL RATINGS and RANKINGS for the 2008 SEASON on December 9, 2008: After 15th WEEK

THE YPPSYS DIVISION I-A FBS PRE-BOWL COLLEGE FOOTBALL RATINGS and RANKINGS for the 2008 SEASON on December 9, 2008
________

THE YPPSYS DIVISION I-A FBS COLLEGE FOOTBALL RATINGS after Week 15 of play.

NAYPPA (net average yards per play advantage) is calculated according to CFBSTATS.COM.

Schedule Difficulty is the ranking according to Massey Ratings.

One-tenth (a multiple of .10) of the schedule ranking (rounded up or down) is subtracted from the NAYPPA of Division I-A FBS schools. For each loss .2 is deducted from the NAYPPA. For Division I-AA FCS and Division II the schedule difficulty multiple is .15 and for Division III schools the multiple is .2. Note that we have changed the formula here in the last week for Division II.

Note that if a team allows 5 or more yards per play on defense an additional .1 is subtracted from the NAYPPA; if 6 yards per play or more are allowed, then .2 is subtracted,; if 7 yards per play or more are allowed, then .3 is subtracted. MOV means "margin of victory" ranking according to the Massey Ratings, but we do not use it here in the calculations.

1 point of rating difference = 9 points on the scoreboard.
