  By SuperWest Sports Staff

Our SuperWest Preseason Composite Football Rankings aggregate and average 14 different media rankings (shown below) by assigning a No. 1 ranking the value of 25 points, a No. 2 ranking 24 points, and so on.

The rounded result is divided by 18 and subtracted from 25, yielding the Composite Rank. Scores of less than 25 points result in a composite non-ranking.

USC, the top SuperWest team in all but four lists, is ranked as high as fourth and no lower than 15th.

Washington’s rankings span from fifth to 11th, Oregon’s from eighth to 15th, Utah’s from ninth to 22nd, Oregon State from 13th to 20th, and UCLA from 17th to 25th.

Colorado (21st) and Boise State (25th) were each ranked just once, not enough for them to break into the composite rankings.
