NCAA Football Team Rankings After Week 3 (Sept. 20)Authored by Christopher Reina - 21st September, 2010 - 1:29 am
With many teams now having played three games, the Trench Counter rankings have begun to look increasingly like the standard AP and Coaches rankings.
Ohio State and Alabama, the two favorites to meet in the BCS National Championship Game are ranked second and third respectively, just behind Oregon.
Over time, the Trench Counter will more closely resemble the standard rankings, but it will always tell us less about reputation and flukes and more about who controls the line of scrimmage.
The scoreboard is where games are officially won and lost, but they are largely decided by the team that wins the battles of yards per pass, yards per carry, penalty yards lost, first downs, and turnovers.
