Before any games are played, the computer assumes that the opponents on
each school's schedule will play a full complement of games and assigns the
divisor of 100 (10 weeks times 10 opponents = 100). After each week of the
season, for each open date that occurs for an opponent that a school has
played to date, the computer subtracts the divisor by one. In other words,
if week five has just been completed and all five of a school's opponents
have played a full complement of games, then the divisor remains at 100, and
second level points are divided by 100. If one opponent on a school's
schedule to date has had an open date, then the divisor reduces by one to
99, and second level points are divided by 99. If two opponents on a
school's schedule to date have had an open date, then the divisor reduces by
two to 98, and second level points are divided by 98, and so on. The second
level points are then multiplied by the factor 10 in order to move the
decimal point higher so that the averages are comparable to those in past
years. First and second level point averages are then added together for an
average total. The following is an example of how the points are awarded and how to read the OHSAA Computer Rankings:

First level points  16.5 points {3 wins times 5.5 points (for defeating Division III opponents)} divided by 3 (the number of games Team A has played thus far) = 5.5000 first level points. Second level points  11.0 from Opponent 1 {2 wins times 5.5 (for defeating Division III opponents)}, 11.0 from Opponent 2 {2 wins times 5.5 (for defeating Division III opponents)} and 5.5 from Opponent 3 {1 win times 5.5 (for defeating a Division III opponent)} for 27.5 points. These 27.5 points are then divided by 99 (since Opponent 3 thus far has had an open date) and multiplied by 10 = 2.7778 second level points. Total Points: 5.5000 (first level points) plus 2.7778 (second level points) = 8.2778 NOTE: Say during week four, Opponent 1 has an open date. Then the second level points divisor for Team A after week four becomes 98, since Opponent 3 has had one open date and now Opponent 1 has had one open date.
