Explanation Key
Poll Average—The average of the Associated Press media poll and the USA Today/ESPN coaches' poll. Others receiving votes are calculated in order received.
Computer Average—The average of The Hester & Anderson/Seattle Times, Jeff Sagarin's rankings and The New York Times rankings. In order to prevent differences in individual formulas, a maximum adjusted deviation of no greater than 50 percent of the average of the two lowest computer rankings is utilized. That number appears in parenthesis.
Quartile Rank—Rank of schedule strength compared to other Division I-A teams divided by 25. This component is calculated by determining the cumulative won/loss records of the team's opponents (66.6 percent) and the cumulative won/loss record of the team's opponents' opponents (33.3 percent).
Losses—One point for each loss during the season.
