NFL Power Rankings: Conference Championship Week

The Denver Broncos and the San Francisco 49ers remain on target as the projected Super Bowl opponents, according to the NFL Sports Power Rankings.

The No. 1 ranked Broncos will face No. 6 New England in the AFC Championship game Sunday in Denver. The Broncos advanced to the AFC championship for the first time in eight seasons with a seven-point win over No. 11 San Diego in the divisional playoffs.

Denver quarterback Peyton Manning, who set NFL records for touchdown passes and passing yards during the regular season, is 4-10 against New England quarterback Tom Brady and the Patriots, including 0-2 with Denver. The quarterbacks split a pair of AFC title games when Manning was the Indianapolis quarterback.

The Patriots moved up two places in the NFL Power Rankings and gained their third straight spot in the AFC title game with a 43-22 victory over the No. 12 Indianapolis Colts in the divisional playoffs, as LeGarrette Blount rushed for 166 yards and a franchise-record four touchdowns.

Colin Kaepernick threw one touchdown pass and ran for another score and the No. 2 49ers advanced to their third consecutive NFC Championship Game with a 23-10 victory over the No. 8 Carolina Panthers in the divisional playoffs. The 49ers will face the No. 5 Seattle Seahawks at rowdy CenturyLink Field in Seattle next Sunday for a chance to play in their second straight Super Bowl.

The Seahawks, the NFC’s No. 1 seed, moved within one game of a trip to Super Bowl XLVIII after holding off the No. 3 New Orleans Saints with a 23-15 decision in an NFC Divisional Playoff at a stormy and soggy CenturyLink Field, where the Seahawks have gone an intimidating 16-1 in Russell Wilson’s two years as the starting quarterback.

Despite the 8-point result, New Orleans and Seattle switched places in this week’s NFL Power Rankings because the Seahawks had blasted the Saints by 27 points in their previous meeting on December 2. The closer result in the playoff game resulted in a downgrade in Seattle’s ratings and an upgrade in New Orleans’s.

The Broncos can clinch home field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs with a win at No. 30 Oakland on Sunday. The 49ers have clinched a playoff berth, but need to defeat No. 9 Arizona this week to have a shot at winning the NFC West, earning a first-round bye, and/or earning the home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.

NCAA College Football Power Rankings: Bowl Games

The bowl games begin in just two days, and the NCAA College Football Sports Power Rankings can be used to project the outcomes of each of the 34 college football bowl games scheduled to take place between now and January 6.

The BCS Championship game on January 6 pits No. 1 Florida State against No. 7 Auburn. Our computer model projects that based on their current ratings of 1.763 and .994, respectively, FloridaState should defeat Auburn by between 19 and 21 points, easily covering the 8.5 point spread that Vegas has established for the game. At such a large projected margin of victory, FloridaState may also present a solid value as a highly confident pick in bowl game confidence pools.

Another game that also appears to present a great degree of value to fans who use College Football Power Rankings to make their selections is the Capital One Bowl on January 1, when No. 5 Wisconsin will meet No. 18 South Carolina. The Sports Power Rankings formula projects that Wisconsin should defeat the Gamecocks by 6 points; the game currently has a “pick’em” line.

Other projected upsets include Colorado State over Washington State in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl; Buffalo over San Diego State in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl; Boise State over Oregon State in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl; Utah State over Northern Illinois in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl; Michigan over Kansas State in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl; Georgia Tech over Mississippi in the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl; and Houston over Vanderbilt in BBVA Compass Bowl.

Here are the complete NCAA College Football Power Rankings, through games of December 14, 2013 (note that with only one game scheduled – the Army-Navy game – only a handful of teams moved up or down in the rankings from last week):

NCAA College Football Sports Power Rankings: Week 16

The Florida State Seminoles remain in the dominant No. 1 position in the NCAA College Football Power Rankings.

Florida State defeated No. 42 Duke 45-7 in the ACC Championship Game last week, to conclude their undefeated regular season.

Including Florida State, the top six teams in the NCAA Football Power Rankings remained unchanged from the previous week. Alabama, Baylor, Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Oregon round out the top six teams.

Auburn’s 59-42 victory over No. 11 Missouri in the SEC Championship vaulted the Tigers up five spots into the No. 7 slot. Auburn will meet Florida State in the BCS National Champioship Game on January 6.

Two other conference championship game winners also made big moves in the NCAA Football Power Rankings. Michigan State moved up six spots to No. 20 after defeating Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship, and Bowling Green improved eight positions to No. 22 after slaying previously undefeated Northern Illinois in the MAC Championship.

The only remaining regular season game in college football will be played on Saturday, December 14, pitting No. 109 Army against No. 54 Navy.
