Here are our College Football Prediction Results for Week 2 2013 relying on YPPSYS, our Yards Per Play System.

Skip the indented material if you are already familiar with it.
What makes a good prognosticator? Confidence and/or Accuracy?
And how about keeping all those conference changes straight?

Caveat emptor (Buyer beware): We make this material available in good fun out of interest for the sport of college football. Please do not rely on our material to place bets or wagers of any kind. No one knows the exact outcome of a game or a season before it is played and that is what makes it so interesting. We disclaim any and all liability for the consequences of anyone relying in any way upon our postings, analysis, links or reasoning - for which we make no warranty of accuracy. May the best team win.

Our game predictions for the wnd week of College Football 2012 (Week One) relied in large part on our YPPSYS Preseason College Football Rankings 2013, as based largely on our YPPSYS Final 2012 year-end Rankings and Ratings, but also involving biased and subjective judgment on our part. YPPSYS means "yards per play system", as that is our main ranking component, based primarily on stats at cfbstats.com, but we also use schedule difficulty and conference rankings as based on calculations e.g. at Massey Ratings. At YPPSYS, we regard a difference of one rating point to be worth about 7 points on the scoreboard, a calculation, of course, that is not absolute, given home field advantages, etc. We calculate the home field advantage at an average of about 3 points.

The betting lines ("odds" or "spread") used here were taken from
the College Football Prediction Tracker as of Wednesday, September 4, 2013, 3:21:57 PM or, if CFPT did not have the odds, from Oddsshark as of Wednesday, September 4, 2013. Please be aware that odds often change over time clear up to game time, but we do not change them here, using the Wednesday spreads as our comparison odds!
