LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – More computer ratings are coming out after the first weekend of the college football season. Jeff Sagarin, who remains the gold standard to me, posted his Tuesday morning.

Louisville is 59th in Sagarin's ELO-Chess numbers, the ones used in the BCS formula, because they don't include margin of victory. If you do include margin of victory, Louisville is 54th.

For Kentucky, the rankings are 70 with margin of defeat, 77 without.

For Indiana, both numbers are 122. For Western Kentucky, it's 158 with margin of victory, 124 without.

Here are Sagarin's top 10, according to his BCS-approved rankings:

  1. Alabama
  2. TCU (huh?)
  3. LSU
  4. Oregon
  5. Boise State
  6. Oklahoma
  7. Stanford
  8. USC
  9. Texas A&M

10. Wisconsin.
