The 2007 post season bowl games began with Navy taking on Utah, and concluded with the BCS Championship Game (LSU.vs. Ohio State). The Overtake and Feedback ranking system (OAF), and the BCS (Bowl Championship Series) rating systems' final positions are listed below for the 64 teams competing in this year's 32 bowl games. (http://www.masseyratings.com/cf/compare.htm lists the final rankings computed after the regular season ended for all 120 division I-A colleges.) The final pre-bowl rankings produced from the rating systems created by Jeff Anderson and Chris Hester (A&H), Richard Billingsley, Wes Colley, Kenneth Massey, Jeff Sagarin, Peter Wolfe, and the Associate Press (AP) / USA Today's coaches' poll position is shown below. (The systems that include margin of victory by Massey, and by Sagarin, were selected from those that are listed on the comparison web page given above since I believe both of their systems that include margin of victory are purported to be more effective, and margin of victory is excluded in the BCS versions of their systems.)
