Week 6 CFB Rankings

Please forgive this is late. I was focusing on my first responders course for work and just could not get to posting and publishing my weekly rankings. I will provide the Week 6 CFB rankings, since I still collect the data and rank CFB programs even when I do get busy.

Here are the week 6 Top 25 CFB football rankings for all of the FBS level.
