Well this is weird.

Football Power Index (FPI) is one of the analytics that ESPN really likes to push in college football, valuing it as a metric truly measuring the quality of the FBS college football teams. While some question it’s merit with how accurate it really is, the metric usually does a solid job of, you know, having all the teams.

On Tuesday… it didn’t have that, as the Georgia Bulldogs were mysteriously missing from the metric.

A previous version of the FPI shows that Georgia should rank No. 5 in the metric, but they’ve completely vanished altogether as of press time.

For what it’s worth, this may just be a glitch involving a couple of teams; one of Georgia’s big rivals, Georgia Tech, is missing from this version of FPI as well.

One thing that is certain is that the Bulldogs haven’t disappeared from college football; Kirby Smart’s team is set to play in the Rose Bowl against No. 3 Oklahoma in a few days in the College Football Playoff.

ESPN’s FPI can be seen here. Hopefully Georgia is back on there soon.
