Compu-Picks Post 2012 Analysis: rating the best and worst performances of the 2012 college football season

Over the offseason, I'll be releasing a number of articles containing data and analyses about the 2012 college football season. This article is the third such article of these, showing the 100 best and 50 worst performances of the 2012 college football season.


These games are ordered by overall game score, which is a combination of the result and the difficulty of the game (opponent strength as well as home-field advantage and other modifiers). It may be interesting to note that of the top 100 rated performances, precisely one of them was a loss: Georgia's nail-biter defeat to Alabama in the SEC championship game (ranked 86th overall).
