My Final Top 25 College Football Power Rankings for 2010 Season

Updated on January 19, 2011

2010 College Football Season

 Here are my final power rankings of the 2010 college football season.  I have picked the best top 25 teams of the college football season this year along with each teams' four most important games of the regular season.  Although all games are important on a team's schedule there are at least four games that can define a team's season on what kind of season it has.  I have label four games on each team schedule as statement, impact, swing and trap games.  A statement game is a game where a team attempts to make a statement.  Next you have your impact games, these games can have a impact on a team's success by winning or losing that particular game.  Then you have the swing games.  Games that can swing a team success in a positive or negative way depending on the outcome.  Last you have your trap games.  These games can sneak up on you if a team is not prepared.  So here are my final top 25 power rankings of the college football 2010 season along with each teams statement, impact, swing and trap games of the regular season only.
