At this time last year, Syracuse had just beaten No. 22 NC State in The Dome Formerly Known As Carrier to improve to 6-2 on the season. That win also moved the Orange into the AP Top 25 poll for the first time since 2001, as Syracuse found itself at No. 22. It would remain in the poll the rest of the season, climbing as high as No. 12 following a 54-23 win over Louisville two weeks later. Syracuse would finish the season 10-3 and at No. 15 in the AP poll.

This led to some hype leading to the 2019 season. With Clemson being the clear No. 1 in the ACC and no obvious choice to be No. 2, many pundits chose the team that went 10-3 last season to be that team despite a lot of important losses. Syracuse opened 2019 at No. 22 in the preseason AP Top 25 and moved up a spot to No. 21 after a narrow 24-0 win over Liberty in its season-opener. The next week Syracuse lost at Maryland 63-20 and fell out of the poll entirely.

Week 9 Superlatives

As many of you know, I rank all 130 teams using a mathematical formula I created. That system is how I compile the Bottom 25, but for those of you interested in how the rest of the rankings look, you can see them all right here (it's updated weekly after The Bottom 25 is published). I will also be sharing some weekly superlatives from the rankings here in The Bottom 25.

Highest Climber: Georgia Southern climbed 22 spots this week, up from No. 102 to No. 80 after beating New Mexico State 41-7. It's a nice leap for a team that has spent so much time in The Bottom 25 this year.

Biggest Faller: It looked like FIU had turned a corner, winning three straight to bounce back from a 1-3 start to the season. Then the Panthers went and got blown out 50-17 by a Middle Tennessee team that was in The Bottom 25 last week. The Panthers fell 20 spots to No. 88 because of it.

Most Average Team: This week the honor belongs to No. 61 Southern Miss. The Eagles score is 0.99% better than the average score of all 130 teams.

Most Fraudulent Team: Nevada almost made Bottom 25 history this week. No team with a .500 record has ever been ranked in The Bottom 25 this late in the season, but the Wolf Pack nearly pulled it off. They're 4-4 on the year and ranked No. 105. That's one spot ahead of North Texas, which is in The Bottom 25. The next closest .500 team is Miami (OH) at No. 91.

Best Team with a Losing Record: Coastal Carolina finds itself at No. 78 with a 3-4 record. The only team with a winning record the Chanticleers are ranked ahead of is No. 80 Georgia Southern, but they are ahead of six teams at 4-4. Whether that means anything going forward remains to be seen.

Worst Team with a Winning Record: That would be Liberty, which just lost by 10 to Rutgers. The Flames are 5-3 on the season and ranked at No. 76. They fell 18 spots in the rankings, and their overall score is 28.41% below average. The good news is there are no teams with a losing record ranked above them, but there are a lot of four-loss teams rated higher.
