FEI rating system has four SEC teams in top 10
If you’re up for a little change of pace when it comes to ranking all 128 college football teams after six weeks of the 2016 season, you may want to check out the Fremeau Efficiency Index (FEI).
As described by the system’s founder, Brian Fremeau:
The Fremeau Efficiency Index (FEI) is a college football rating system based on opponent-adjusted drive efficiency. Approximately 20,000 possessions are contested annually in FBS vs. FBS games. First-half clock-kills and end-of-game garbage drives and scores are filtered out. Unadjusted game efficiency (GE) is a measure of net success on non-garbage possessions, and opponent adjustments are calculated with special emphasis placed on quality performances against good teams, win or lose.
Entering Week 7, the FEI lists four SEC teams in the top 10 and six in the top 25, but only seven in the top 50.
Here’s where every team from the conference stands:
3. Texas A&M
6. Ole Miss
66. Mississippi State
84. South Carolina
