2010 Elite Selection Playoff: Week Eleven

There are still four unbeaten teams. Auburn bested Georgia in a slugfest, Boise State handled Idaho, Oregon survived against California, and TCU edged out San Diego State. With the exception of the Broncos, the other four teams looked largely human.

The trend of top ranked AVR teams with weak schedules continues. Of the top 10 AVR teams, six—Boise State, Oregon, TCU, Nebraska, Ohio State, and Wisconsin—have strength of schedules ranked in the bottom half of the country while the highest strength of schedule among these 10 teams belongs to LSU at number 31.

With the win over Utah, Notre Dame moves from 65th last week to 52nd. The Irish have played the 2nd most difficult strength of schedule (SOS), rank 21st in quality wins/losses (QWL), 65th in adjusted win percentage (AWP), 59th in margin of victory (MOV), and 49th in team performance ratio (TPR)—66th in offense and 21st on defense. Should the defense hold on to that TPR ranking, it would be an improvement of 37 spots from last season, an improvement no team accomplished from 2008 to 2009.

Future Irish opponent AVR ranks: Army—50th, and USC—24th.
