Week 9 College Football SRS Ratings: FSU, Oregon, Bama, and Baylor stand alone

by Chase Stuart on October 27, 2013

in College, SRS

Shaw helped USC win the Battle of The Columbias Trophy. Yes, that is a real thing.

Shaw helped USC win the Battle of The Columbias Trophy. Yes, that is a real thing.

Last week, five teams emerged as the upper crust of college football. That number has dropped to four, after Missouri lost to South Carolina in typical heartbreaking style. The Tigers led 17-0 entering the fourth quarter, but that was before USC starting quarterback Connor Shaw — who had been held out due to injury — was inserted into the game. Shaw led the Gamecocks on a furious comeback to force overtime. After MIZZOU scored a touchdown on the first possession, Shaw threw his third touchdown pass on 4th-and-goal from the 16 yard line. On the second possession, USC was up first and kicked a field goal. Missouri looked to match South Carolina, but a 24-yard field goal bounced off the left upright, giving Tigers fans the gut punch loss of the season.

Elsewhere, most things went according to plan. Johnny Manziel played like a Heisman Trophy winner (25/35, 305 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT), while Teddy Bridgewater (25/29, 344, 3, 0), Bryce Petty (20/32, 430, 3/0), and Jameis Winston (16/26, 292, 3/1) continued their dominant seasons. A couple of embattled schools pulled off impressive wins over conference rivals: Michigan State won 42-3 against Illinois, while Texas continued to put September in the rear-view mirror by stomping TCU, 30-7.

Below are the SRS ratings through nine weeks. As a reminder, you can read about the methodology here. As always, thanks to Dr. Peter Wolfe for providing the final scores for every college football game.

Miami may by 7-0, but a last-minute win at home against Wake Forest dropped the Hurricanes in the SRS. Miami travels to Tallahassee next week, and Vegas has the Seminoles as 21-point favorites, which just about perfectly matches the SRS. It would be a major upset if Miami was able to defeat FSU, despite the fact that both teams play in the same conference and have the same record.

Week 9 results

Florida State and Alabama jumped out to huge halftime leads against NC State and Tennessee, respectively, but Oregon posted the best game score of the week with a 42-14 win over UCLA. Two weeks ago, UCLA was #8 in the SRS and 5-0. A loss to Stanford last week only dropped the Bruins to 11th, and it’s a testament to how dominant Oregon has been over the past few years that a 28-point win over a team as strong as UCLA gets a collective shrug from the college football nation. Ohio State posted the second best win of the week, crushing Penn State in embarrassing fashion, 63-14. Below are the results from every FBS game in week nine. As a reminder, you can view the SRS scores from every game this season at this page.
