The six sites used are:

RSL Soapbox Power Rankings

The methodology for my scoring system is the same as I’ve published before. Anything that deviates from the ‘expected’ result (I.E. home team winning) equals a larger change; the expected result will still cause some changes, but often smaller than the surprises. Thus you will see teams that win on the road gaining more ‘power ranking points’ than a home team winning by the same score.
