College Football Rankings

Hello sports fan!

I’ve developed a bias-free algorithm to rank college football teams.

To those who are not familiar, unlike any other sport, college football team’s standings are not determined by win-percentage or points, but polls. Yes, that may seem strange, but it happens because there are hundreds of teams and very few games in a season (they cannot all face each other in the same season).

With polls, a lot of problems come along. Humans are biased, hype and fan-base size influence the pollsters and of course, politics and geography play a role.

The streamlit app compare the bias-free algorithm with the polls and help us questioning the polls and understanding when the team is good, or it is just hype (yes, I am talking to you Michigan).

The app is available at and the project at

The algorithm is customizable. To change params, check the sidebar.

Please let me know your thoughts, and how well is your favorite team doing in the rankings.
