The 2022 college football season isn’t going to be starting until August 27th, but it’s going to be one of the most exciting of all time. Because of all the name image and likeliness deals currently taking place with some of the bigger programs, programs are getting better than they’ve ever been. With what we have come up with below, bettors can learn some about NCAA football odds and NCAA football picks.
NCAA Football Standings
In order for us to understand the 2022 NCAA football standings, we’re going to have to understand how some of the scheduling works. The season is going to begin on August 27th, as we stated above, and it’s going to see a few out-of-conference matchups. This means that teams are going to be playing other teams that are not in the same conference as them, but it’s still going to affect their overall record and how teams are ranked in terms of bowl games and national rankings.
The college football season only lasts 12 games per year. Eight or nine of those games, depending on the conference, are going to come against conference opponents. At the end of the season, whatever two teams did the best in the conference will play against each other in the Conference Finals. Unlike some other sports, teams in the top four of the standings will not play in a semi-final game. Most of the time, teams only play in a championship. This means that only the top two teams from each conference get a chance to win their conference.
NCAA Football Rankings
After the conference Championship, teams are somewhat reseeded and then put into a different pool and play other teams from different conferences most of the time. These are considered “bowl games”, and we also have the National Championship that includes the top four teams in the country going at it and then the winner of each two games playing in the final.
Standings are interesting in college football because certain teams could be higher ranked despite another being higher than them in their conference standings.
