2016/2017 NCAA Division I-A Football RPI Calculation


This is for the 2016/2017 season.

Ranking based upon the NCAA's publicized RPI formula often used for college sports other than football. Unlike the official RPI calculations for other sports, this calculation incorporates all Division I-A games played, including the post season games. See Explanation.

I do not advocate using the RPI to select football teams for post-season play. This is merely for comparison with other systems.
