ESPN updates FPI Top 25 after Week 12
Week 12 of the college football season has come to a close and we’re already onto Week 13. Time flies when you’re having fun!
Each week, after the games are concluded, ESPN’s FPI — which measures a team’s overall strength — updates and gives teams a number. The higher the number, the better the team.

Last week, seven Big Ten teams were in the FPI’s top 25. This week, there are six. Ohio State was No. 1 a week ago and that trend carries over to this week. Penn State remained at No. 6 and the only Big Ten team to fall outside the top 25 was Michigan State.
I wonder why that could be? (The Spartans have lost five straight games. That’s why.) The best part about this week’s FPI can be seen at the bottom of this article. You’ll have a chuckle at that.
Here’s the ESPN FPI after Week 12:
- Ohio State
- Penn State
- Notre Dame
- Texas A&M
- Iowa State
- Washington State
- Oklahoma State
Last week, at 9-0, Minnesota was ranked No. 19 according to the model. This week? After losing to Iowa?
