Poll by: HawkeyeZim - Official Pollster

Pollster's general comment about their poll:
My poll attempts to rank the most deserving teams in college football. My poll is a weekly/compounding snapshot and doesn't attempt to predict future games nor what team is better then another, just who has the best overall resume. To evaluate resume, i use overall record, SOS and quality wins. When these attributes are close I lean to a measurement called margin of domination. This is a measure of how well a team controls a game without using margin of victory which i believe to be one-sided, leaving teams who control games with defense shortchanged. This is scaled to take into account the quality of the opponents. I started using the MOD measurement as of 12/1/12
