High 25 school soccer rankings for 2022 through ESPN’s up to date FPI

It’s that time of year where preseason rankings start running rampant across the college football landscape.

One of the most interesting rankings to take a look at each year prior to the season kicking off as well as during the season is ESPN’s updated Football Power Index (FPI).

ESPN states its updated FPI is a “measure of team strength that is meant to be the best predictor of a team’s performance going forward for the rest of the season.” The ratings and projections update daily throughout the season.

There’s been quite a bit of chatter regarding ESPN’s FPI top 25 preseason rankings this week. Understandably so, as Texas falls inside the top 10 while USC and Arkansas were excluded.

Here is how ESPN’s metric graded out for the preseason top 25 rankings ahead of the 2022 college football season.
