Ric Flair Alternative College Football Rankings - Week 1

09/04/2018

Your favorite college football ranking system is back for the 2018-19 college football season. Our format remains the same, to be the man you gotta beat the man. Alternative College Football Rankings.

Week one didn't bring many upsets as expected but Appalachian State was close to gaining the number 10 spot but fell just short with an overtime loss to Penn State. Texas football are the only top 25 team to fall out of our top 25 with a loss to previously unranked Maryland. Maryland moves to 23rd in the country.

Alabama performed as expected and Ohio State dropped 77 points without their head coach Urban Meyer on the sidelines. Kyler Murray looks to be every bit as dominant as Baker Mayfield looked last season with over 200 yards on just 11 throws. Penn State look to be in trouble as they struggled against an Appalachian State team that finished 9-4 last season.

Week 2 gives us an interesting slate of games that are sure to shake up the rankings. Mississippi State travels to Kansas State which is one of the best coached teams in the nation, Clemson travels to the always dangerous Texas A&M, Penn State travels to a Pittsburgh team that closed out the 2017 season by handing AP Poll #2 Miami a loss and finished the season at #3 in our rankings, and Michigan State travels to an Arizona State team that gained two AP top 25 upsets last season.

No team has been more actively trading than the Oklahoma City Thunder. With all the trades they've been making, one thing has certainly been prioritized: collecting future draft picks. Normally collecting such a large amount of 1st round picks would be seen as a good thing, but that may not end up being the case for the Thunder. Oklahoma City...
