2019 FS365 Composite Top 25 Teams
This year we are using a new strategy we have coined FS365 Top 25 Composite which combines preseason polls into an average top 25 ranking. The polls used to compile the average are USA Today, ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Sporting News, Athlon, Phil Steel, and Lindy’s. We plan to incorporate multiple data points to get a sense of what the 2019 college football media narrative will be by identifying the potential reasoning behind each of their rankings. Such as why does one poll have a team in the top 10 and another has them in the ’20s.
