#KPI Headlines:

  • Full #KPI data (by team) as of Saturday 8:30 p.m. ET.
  • Partly due to the multitude of upsets in smaller conferences, Southern Miss, Toledo, Green Bay, Louisiana Tech and Belmont look better in the #KPI.
  • As a result, teams like Tennessee (numbers put them just out) are looking better.
