Daily Dribble: High-Major Power Ranking

Last year, I started doing monthly power rankings divided by the BCS, High-Major, and Mid-Major monikers.  I’m continuing that trend once again, starting with the “High-Majors”, which I define to include the A10, CAA, CUSA, MVC, MWC, and WAC.  I’m not suggesting that the A10 might not be better than the Big Ten this year, or that a league like the Horizon isn’t better than the WAC (which is real bad right now), or anything like that.. I use these grouping simply for ease and consistency.

4. BYU 6-1 (MWC)
