The Buckeyes' 34.7 FPI rating – which rates Ohio State by how many points better it is than an average college football team – is also the highest since the ratings metric began in 2004, topping the previous high set of 34.5 which was set by USC between September and October of 2005.
Updating this ... Buckeyes are up to 34.7 points above average. That's the most dominant of any team in our data set, which goes back to 2004. The previous high was 34.5 by USC in late Sept/early Oct of 2005. https://t.co/XarSkjZofV— Brad Edwards (@JBradEdwards) November 10, 2019
