The biggest picture of all.

There are a number of preseason projection systems which take aim at identifying the teams most likely succeed ahead of a season, from Bill Connelly’s SP+ metric to Brian Fremeau’s FEI, but only one includes every single system out there to provide a snapshot of the season from week to week.

The Massey Composite includes 30 different rankings, not just SP+ and FEI but also Sagarin, ESPN’s Football Power Index, old BCS-related rankings like Billingsley, and many more. With so many different perspectives on the college football landscape, how does the Mountain West compare to the rest of the country?

  • 34. Boise State
  • 40. Air Force
  • 50. Fresno State
  • 51. San Diego State
  • 61. Utah State
  • 84. Nevada
  • 92. Wyoming
  • 97. San Jose State
  • 106. Hawaii
  • 107. Colorado State
  • 117. UNLV
  • 126. New Mexico

While the combined rankings may not contain too many surprises, that doesn’t mean there’s an overwhelming consensus. For instance, four different Mountain West teams — Boise State, Air Force, San Diego State, and Utah State — land in the top 25 of at least one ranking within the composite. Conversely, five other teams — Colorado State, Hawaii, Nevada, New Mexico, and UNLV — project as a bottom-ten team somewhere.
