Note: * = Number of stars represents a school's lifetime power rating. A new team starts with 5*.
Record = The total win-loss-tie regular season record accumulated by each team.
Points Scored = Points scored during the regular season. Because there are bye weeks, this category (along with power points) will be adjusted during the season to account for average weeks and not total points.
Power Points = Points earned based on strength of schedule. If a team wins, they earn the other team's power rating x 2. If a team ties, they earn the other team's powering rating x 1.5. If a team loses, they earn the other team's power rating x 1. (A forfeit victory is worth a total of 6 power points)
Picks Record = Overall record of picking teams throughout the season.
If teams are tied in these standings, the following criteria will be utilized:
1. If one team leads another team in 3 or more of the above categories, then the former team earns the tie breaker.
2. If #1 does not break the tie, then we will use the individual categories as tie breakers (in order) a. Record b. Power points c. Points scored d. Picks Record
3. If we remain tied, then the league will vote on the tie-breaker.

Note: If the winner of a conference is selected to play in the playoffs, they will of course play that and not a bowl game. The team that finishes second in that particular team's conference, if their overall record is .500 or better, will represent the conference in its allocated bowl. If the second place team is below .500, the slot will go to an At-Large team. If 2 teams from the same conference go to the BCS playoffs, then the conference's slot for a bowl game will go to an At-Large team.

At Large teams are based on overall rankings.
