How do these ratings work? Because the way I see it, this LSU team could have beaten any team from the last 20 years.

So I haven't looked into that rating system but man the matchups between some of those teams would be amazing!!

I would love to see the 2019 LSU offense go up against that 2011 Bama defense. Talent all over the place.

What match up would you guys most like to see?

I'm guessing it doesn't factor in strength of schedule as much as it does margin of victory.

11 of the last 20 champions were from SEC but 7 of the bottom 8 are SEC teams and none of the top 3 are SEC teams. Tells me it places too much emphasis on margin of victory and not enough on strength of schedule.
