For those of you familiar with my rankings, welcome back! For those of you unfamiliar, each team is assigned points based on wins and losses. The points are then averaged into a point total and then ranked using Microsoft Excel. 
Teams that win receive:
24 points for defeating a BCS opponent, Notre Dame, or BYU
20 points for defeating a FBS opponent that is not in a BCS conference, or is named Notre Dame or BYU
16 points for defeating a FCS opponent
12 points for defeating a DII/DIII/NAIA opponent (note: did not happen)
And teams all received points from opponents win/loss record based on:
2 points for each win against a FBS opponent
1 point for each win against a FCS opponent
0 points for each win against an opponent classified DII or lower
For example, Ohio State won 12 games this season. Since Michigan State beat Ohio State, they receive 24 points for the win, in addition to 22 points for each win over a FBS team and 1 point for the win over a FCS team
 
And without further ado, here are the rankings:
 
1. Florida State (13-0) 33.76923
