ESPN's Football Power Index Says That Auburn Is The Best Team In America

After the dust settled from the chaos that was Saturday's slate of college football games, ESPN's Football Power Index has a new No. 1 team in America. According to FPI -- which is “a measure of team strength that is meant to be the best predictor of a team’s performance going forward for the rest of the season” -- Auburn is the best squad in college football. The rest of the FPI's top five is rounded out by Alabama, Oklahoma, Florida State, and Texas A&M, while Ole Miss is sitting at No. 6.

As usual, it's important to remember that this is nothing more than a projection, and that these aren't necessarily the five best teams in college football. However, you can make a really strong case that Auburn is the best squad in America right now. The Tigers are 5-0, and looked very impressive as they knocked off LSU on Saturday, 41-7.

What do you think, college football fans? Do you agree with the Football Power Index's rankings?
