Every week The Guru calculates and posts new strength of schedule rankings. Below are the SoS rankings for Week 8.

The SoS Rank is each team’s strength of schedule rank after seven weeks of action.

The Opp Avg is the average power ranking of all of the opponents that a team has played to date. The lower the Opp Avg, the harder a team’s schedule.
