CBSSports.com ranks BCS teams since 2007

It’s anyone’s guess what the future of college football’s postseason holds. Will there be a four-team playoff? A plus-one? Or will it be the status quo? Whatever it may be, CBSSports.com’s Brett McMurphy posted an interesting article that ranks the nation’s top teams using final BCS Standings since 2007. Where do Big Ten teams land over the last five seasons? Find out in this post.

The Big Ten ranks third, with 259 total points, behind the Big 12 (361) and SEC (407). McMurphy also recently did the same kind of thing for every season since 1998, which yields better results for the Big Ten.

The Top 25Since 2007
1. Alabama 81 (SEC)
2. Ohio State 79 (Big Ten)
3. LSU 78 (SEC)
(tie). Oklahoma 78 (Big 12)
5. Boise State 74 (Big East)
6. Oregon 73 (Pac-12)
(tie). Virginia Tech 73 (ACC)
8. TCU 68 (Big 12)
9. Florida 59 (SEC)
10. Texas 56 (Big 12)
11. Oklahoma State 55 (Big 12)
12. Stanford 49 (Pac-12)
13. Wisconsin 46 (Big Ten)
14. Georgia 42 (SEC)
(tie). USC 42 (Pac-12)
16. Cincinnati 41 (Big East)
17. Georgia Tech 39 (ACC)
(tie). Missouri 39 (SEC)
19. Arkansas 38 (SEC)
20. Penn State 35 (Big Ten)
(tie). West Virginia 35 (Big 12)
22. Michigan State 34 (Big Ten)
23. BYU 31 (Independent)
24. Utah 31 (Pac-12)
25. Auburn 29 (SEC)

Take what you will from all of this. Remember, it’s only accounting for the last five seasons and the results are a little deceiving due to conferences receiving points for any teams that are members in 2014. As a result, the Big 12 gets credit for No. 8 TCU, which played in the Mountain West during the analyzed span, and its 68 points. Same goes for the Big East, which gets credit for No. 5 Boise State.
