  • North Dakota State Holds on to No. 1 in the 10/15/12 Gridiron Power Index (GPI)

    Despite a loss to top 25 Indiana State, the Bison of North Dakota State remain on top of the Gridiron Power Index (GPI), the index ranking for the NCAA Division I FCS and a top indicator of at-large playoff selection.

    The Missouri Valley Football Conference and the Colonial Athletic Association have five teams in the top 25; the Big Sky Conference has four teams; the Southern Conference has three; the Ohio Valley and Southland Conference have two each; the Northeast and Big South Conferences plus the Ivy and Patriot Leagues each have one. (Games through 10/14/12)

    For conference average rankings, the Missouri Valley Football Conference extended their lead with the Southern and Big Sky Conferences maintaining at two and three. The Colonial Athletic Association and the Southland Conference are in a virtual tie at fourth and fifth and the Ohio Valley Conference is close behind in sixth.

    The Final 2012 GPI will be released once all the college football games have been played, in January 2013. The GPI is an exclusive property of College Sporting News, maintained since 2001. The GPI has been used officially by the NCAA since 2008 for selecting specific Division I Football National Championship tournament participants.
