Omnivore College Football Rankings Return in 2016

July 1st, 2016 / No Comments » / by Omnivore

After a five-year hiatus, mostly to assess the affects the post-BCS era would have on doing computer rankings, we’ve decided to bring the formula back again. I’ll be detailing closer to the season what the new components will be and how it’ll work during the season, but I’ve learned a lot from the previous years I did the ranking and think I’m closer to a ranking that is able to reflect the best team in college football regardless of its league.

Southern Miss claims 2011 Omnivore National Championship

January 11th, 2012 / No Comments » / by Omnivore

With their 24-17 victory over Nevada in the 2011 Hawai’i Bowl, University of Southern MississippiĀ have claimed the 2011 Omnivore College Football National Championship. Awarded retroactively since 1998, the Omnivore National Championship is awarded to the top non-automatic qualifier school in the Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division 1-A) based on the final standings of theĀ Omnivore College Football Computer ranking.

This is the first time a team from Conference USA has claimed the Omnivore national title. Boise State, Texas Christian and Houston lost eligibility for the 2011-12 crown when it became public that each would begin the 2012-13 season in automatic qualifying conferences. Our policy states that teams must be able to defend their national title the following year and in each of these cases, none of them would be able to do so.
