Bottom 25 college football rankings: Seven Power Five teams, one in bottom five

Week Six brought the biggest changes to the Bottom 25 we've seen this season. Two of our Bottom Five teams picked up their first wins as Nevada knocked off Hawaii and Bowling Green took down Miami (Ohio). Both remain in our rankings this week, but they dropped out of the Bottom 10, causing a lot of teams to shuffle positions.

In fact, we now have a Power Five school in our Bottom Five. Which one?

We'll get there in a second, but first, a quick reminder of how these rankings work (full explanation here).

  1. My opinion plays no factor in the rankings
  2. There is true equality to start the season as math doesn't play favorites
  3. Wins and losses mean more than anything
  4. The formula is in no way predictive; it's a meritocracy
  5. I won't share the formula
The Bottom 25

No longer ranked: Temple (25), Georgia State (24), Louisiana (17)
