I find this chart to be very interesting every year. How it’s devised is if you beat an FBS opponent you get credit for all their wins over their FBS opponents.
Strength of Wins
In this first chart below you can see Strength of Wins. Coastal Carolina at the #1 spot after going undefeated so far this season 11-0. Coastal has wins over Kansas, Arkansas St, Louisiana, Georgia Southern, Georgia St, South Alabama, Appalachian St, Texas St, BYU and Troy and those teams have a total of 49 wins. My chart this week now grades 5 teams as having credit with a win but their foes have not won a single game vs a FBS foe.
Here is the Complete list of Strength of Wins with rank: Games Played thru 12/12/20.
Pain of Losses
This next chart we will go over is the Pain of Losses. Here if you lose to an opponent you get credit for all their losses. ULM is on top of this list with a combined 45 foe losses. ULM foe losses include Army, Texas St, UTEP, Georgia Southern,Liberty, South Alabama,Appalachian St, Georgia St, Louisiana, Arkansas St and Troy. Unlike the Strength of Wins chart, the Pain of Losses chart does include a loss to an FCS foe. I count that loss a 4 towards the combined foe loss record due to the weakness of the opponent.
Here is your complete Pain of Losses Chart with rank: Games Played thru 12/12/20.
Overall Wins and Losses
In this last chart below you can see the overall wins and losses. As you can see the top four teams are Coastal Carolina, Alabama, Louisiana and Notre Dame.
