Alabama vs Oregon Schedule Strength through the middle of October




For your talking point pleasure:

According to the various services that rate schedule strength, Alabama's schedule so far has been tougher than the average team's schedule, Oregon's schedule has been easier than the average team's schedule. (I'm saying that with 120 teams, 60th is average.)

Average of all ratings services:
Alabama 35th-toughest schedule
Oregon 74th-toughest schedule

Sagarin ratings:
Alabama 32nd
Oregon 93rd

GBE ratings:
Alabama 47th
Oregon 92nd

Cosgrove
Alabama 21st
Oregon 64th

Teamrankings.com
Alabama 24th
Oregon 57th

Official NCAA rating:
Alabama 51st
Oregon 64th

By the way, the NCAA ratings are the least valuable because all they do is take the won-lost record of your opponents and combine them, which really isn't very useful at all. I only include it for reference.

Without the NCAA ratings, the average is:

Alabama 31st
Oregon 78th

This 31st-78th is actually probably more accurate than the 35th-74th I'm leading with.
