Final 2016 Roby Ratings for FBS College Football

Note:  In order to qualify for the final 2016 edition of the Roby Ratings, a particular team must be involved in a bowl game or a playoff game. It is also the policy of this publication to guarantee that the winner of a bowl game is ranked at least 0.01 of a rating point ahead of the team that it defeated in such game.  If a team’s final rating is raised in order to accommodate this policy, the original rating will be listed in ( ) parentheses.
