Continuation of Competitive Rankings

I wrote a program that implements the algorithm in the last blog entry... It took about four hours but I put all the info for the 2010 Division I football season (All but the final bowls) into the program and then it took about a second for the computer to process into this ranking of the top 25 (I did all the teams but I'm only displaying the top 25), I've put it next to three other rankings to compare...

So here is how the bowls played out:
My ranking system predicted the winner by the pre-bowl ranking:
