Where Alabama ranks in ESPN’s Football Power Index after Week 3

Week 3 of the college football season is now complete and Nick Saban and the Alabama football team are fresh off its ugly road win over the South Florida Bulls, 17-3.

Now, it is time to see where Alabama ranks in ESPN’s Football Power Index following the events of Week 3.

According to ESPN, FPI is defined as “a measure of team strength that is meant to be the best predictor of a team’s performance going forward for the rest of the season. FPI represents how many points above or below average a team is. Projected results are based on 20,000 simulations of the rest of the season using FPI, results to date, and the remaining schedule. Ratings and projections update daily. FPI data from seasons prior to 2019 may not be complete.”
