Alabama comes out on top in the EP3+ as it does in any power ranking worth its salt. Texas comes in #2, and while the rank is not hugely shocking, the reason for the ranking is: to this point, the Longhorns have had the nation's 2nd most effective offense. Texas Tech is 5th primarily due to its 2.79 EP3 average on offense (compared to a national average of .27).
Louisiana Tech and Air Force are a full half touchdown better on offense than defense. Kansas St is 9th overall despite its 65th ranked defense while Oklahoma is 18th overall despite its 2nd ranked defense. The Big 10 has only two teams in the top 25, Purdue and Iowa St.
