Week 4 Rankings:
Four Weeks remain in the regular season, and there is movement in the polls. While the top 4 teams in the country remain the same, slot #8, which would determine the final playoff spot, continues to shift from week to week.
The weekly WNFC Power Ranking is determined by polling from a combination of the Women's Football Rankings Committee (WFRC) and the Owners Poll. This is a non-system-generated rating system. The voters are asked to use their eclectic backgrounds in sports, strategic thinking, and perspectives in football to develop clear ranking results. As a starting point, members are asked to consider:
Overall team record
Strength of Schedule
Head to Head results
Comparison of results against common opponents
Other objective thoughts and insights
Week 4 WFRC Voters: Oscar Lopez, Alex Schafer, Joey Russo, Jennifer Colbert, Robert Reid, Bo McMichael, and Theodore Robertson. 15 WNFC Owners participated (minus Atlanta).
