2013 NCAA FBS Top 25 Defensive Ranking for Week 4
Today I am going to post the top 25 teams in terms of defense for 2013 at the end of Week #4. As a reminder, a team's defense is based on how well the team's defense keeps their opponent from acquiring the ball, moving the ball, maintaining possession of the ball, reducing their opponent's scoring efficiency and athletic conference. Then I estimate the weight that each of those variables has on points scored against. From there I take the estimate and multiply it by that variables number for the team. Finally, I adjust (if applicable) for athletic conference. For this past week, there is no adjustment made for athletic conference. So here are the top 25 defensive teams.
