Team, adj w%, SOS (%), v. T25
MSU, .909, 66-54 (.550), 3-0
BYU, .986, 45-84 (.349), 4-0
ISU, .970, 55-64 (.462), 2-0
Keep in mind that MSU's only loss was to Michigan, which is 9-2 and #14 at the moment. Nobody on BYU's schedule is currently ranked, while two of ISU's are. This season has been a learning experience as far as how to run a ranking formula. I think next year's formula will be more accurate.

That means Iowa State's game this week against Kansas State is now for the league championship. A KState win would create a 3-way tie atop the Big-12 standings, but both ISU and KSU hold a tiebreaker over Missouri (Iowa State won 37-34 in Week 7 and Kansas State won 30-29 in Week 6). These are exciting times in the Big-12.
EDIT: I just looked again, and it looks like Kansas State's Week 12 game will end in a Texas upset over KSU. So that will throw a wrench in the works. I guess things aren't as clear as I thought.
Iowa State's loss means BYU is the only remaining undefeated team left. Michigan State, Iowa State and Ball State all have one loss, and everyone else has two or more.
Also, #14 Michigan's 28-23 win over #4 Ohio State this week means #1 Michigan State will not play in the Big Ten championship game.

The winner of the head to head match-up will represent the BIG EAST in the Bowl Championship Series.
A "MINI-CONFERENCE" IS CREATED AMONGST THE THREE TIED TEAMS
All three teams have either a 6-1 or 5-2 record and have each won one game and lost one game against the other tied teams in the mini-conference. In this case, the highest ranked team amongst the three earns the bid. If two of the three teams are tied for the highest ranking, the bid is earned by the team winning the head-to-head match up.
All three teams have 5-2 records, and within the mini-conference, Team A is 2-0, Team B is 1-1, and Team C is 0-2. Team A earns bid regardless of ranking.
A "MINI-CONFERENCE" IS CREATED AMONGST THE FOUR TIED TEAMS
In the mini-conference, Teams A & B are 2-1, and Teams C & D are 1-2. The higher ranked of the 2-1 teams earns the bid. If the 2-1 teams tie for the highest ranking, the bid goes to the team that won the head-to-head match up.
In the mini-conference, Team A is 3-0, Team B is 2-1, Team C is 1-2, and Team D is 0-3. Team A earns bid regardless of ranking.
