Share “The Colley Matrix”

Because their formulas are kept secret, it’s difficult to gauge where Oklahoma and Texas would rank in each of the six computer polls if the two win this weekend.

Except in the Colley Matrix.

Not only does Wes Colley publish his mathematical formula on his Web site,, he has a tool that can approximately predict where teams will finish based on future results.

Right now, Texas is first and OU is fifth in the Colley rankings.

If the Top 5 teams all win this weekend, Texas would still be first by a sizable margin, but OU would jump to third.

If Florida lost to Florida State, OU would be second.

Interestingly, if OU, Texas and Florida all win out, with OU and Florida winning their respective conference championships, the Colley would have Florida at No. 1, OU at No.2 and Texas at No. 3.
