Seminoles continue march toward perfection, maintain top spot in UPS Index
(AP) -- While Florida State and Alabama remain in the mix to finish atop the UPS Performance Index, only one of them has the chance to win a national championship.
Maintaining their hold on the No. 1 spot in the Index following another dominating win in a season full of them, the Seminoles are the only undefeated team in the FBS and will face surging Auburn in the BCS title game next month in Pasadena.
Using an advanced proprietary formula featuring offensive yards per play, defensive yards allowed per play, quality of opponent, various special teams statistics and a microindex of miscues that rewards disciplined teams, UPS has teamed with STATS LLC to normalize those numbers across 125 FBS schools.
