Arizona Western College of Yuma is the 30th-best college football team in the country according to Ken Massey’s computer ranking, the LA Times reports.
Massey’s computer ranking is part of the overall BCS ranking that ultimately spits out who will play in the national title game.
Arizona Western falls to 88th in the ranking that Massey actually submits to the BCS. But still, it’s ridiculous that a junior college team is ranked in the top-tier of college football.
The problems stems from the fact that Massey includes all 724 college teams that play football in his ranking.
Here’s how the LAT explained it:

Yes, this is how they pick the national champion in college football.
