More than Houston being #1 on this list, I'm surprised Stanford has only played 6 ranked teams in this time frame.

What pops out to me most on that list is Alabama at 17-2. That's a stunning winning % against so many ranked teams. Have they really played 19 ranked teams in the last 2+ years? Seems almost impossible.

Better question: did all of those teams deserve to be ranked?

When it comes to teams ranked in final AP polls since '15, the Tide went 12-2.

That is an average of basically 6 or 7 ranked teams a year. No wonder Sagarin had their SOS last year at #1. That's an amazing number, and yet they won the national title one year and were runner-up the next!

To have that much success against such a brutal schedule is incredible. And those teams came from all the other power conferences except the Big 12.

And looking at the list, they are 9-1 against teams ranked in the top 10!

Teams tend to play their rank to some extent.
