Through two weeks, Oklahoma has what is likely the best win of the college football season. Now, some pundits believe they are the No. 1 team in the country.
He’s not alone.
On Tuesday, CBS Sports writer Tom Fornelli unveiled his new formula-based Top 50, which also slides the Sooners in ahead of the Crimson Tide.
Oklahoma has what the formula considers the best win of the season so far, going on the road to knock off Ohio State 31-16.
It should be noted that Fornelli doesn’t tinker with his equation, so there could be some weird results this early in the year, like UCF being ranked No. 5 behind the strength of a single blowout win over FIU. Still, it isn’t outrageous to put OU at No. 1 if you believe in Ohio State as a top program. A definitive road win in Columbus is a significant result.
