Strength of Schedule Ratings are a function of the FEI ratings of a given team's opponents and the location (home/away/neutral) of each game. Overall SOS ratings represent the likelihood than an elite team (two standard deviations better than average) would go undefeated against the given team's entire schedule.

The table includes the average number of losses an elite team would have against the schedule (EL), the average number of losses a good team (one standard deviation better than average) would have against the schedule (GL), and the average number of losses an average team would have against the schedule (AL). The total number of games in the given team's entire schedule against FEI top 5 opponents (v5), top 15 opponents (v15), top 30 opponents (v30), and top 50 opponents (v50) is also included.

The strength of the given team's regular season schedule discounting conference championship games and bowl games (RSOS), as well as the average number of elite team losses (REL), good team losses (RGL), and average team losses (RAL) that would be expected against the given team's regular season schedule are also included.
