2013 FBS College Football Rankings after WEEK 10 of Play, by SportPundit.

Below are the 2013 FBS College Football Rankings after WEEK 10 of play, by SportPundit.

Please read the indented material unless you are already familiar with it.
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.

These ratings and rankings are based in part on our primary measure of "net average yards per play advantage" (NAYPPA), a specific predictive calculation which we were the first to implement, minus a calculation based on the schedule difficulty and a penalty for losses. Gauging schedule difficulty is always an approximation!

Yards per play stats are taken from cfbstats.com. In recent years, an average FBS team gained ca. 5.4 yards per play on offense and allowed ca. 5.4 yards per play on defense, a stat that holds fairly constant from year to year, but slightly affected by FCS scheduling.
 
Massey Ratings schedule difficulty ratings are used in part, but we have our own -- objective and subjective -- judgments and adjustments to handle schedule difficulty.
As a general rule of thumb for our rankings and ratings -- taking the NAYPPA, we subtract .01 times 2x the schedule difficulty up to 50, and .01 times 3x the schedule difficulty for 55 and up. We subtract .2 for every loss. The system is a bit unwieldy for calculation, but we have to account for strong teams beating up on weak ones.

As a measuring stick, note that the best (undefeated) college teams of all time had a NAYPPA of not greater than 3.0 for an entire season. Schedules have become easier recently, e.g. through FCS scheduling, and Boise State had a 3.5 "season NAYPPA" three years ago but lost a game and played an easier schedule than top teams. According to the yards-per-play standard, the 2012-2013 Alabama team would have been ranked among the best teams ever, had they not lost to Texas A&M. But they did lose.

See Best Teams Ever: (top three as examples below)
We repeat that in past recent years, an average FBS team gained ca. 5.4 yards per play on offense and allowed ca. 5.4 yards per play on defense, a statistic that has held fairly constant.

Week 10 2013 College Football FBS Game Prediction RESULTS by SportPundit

Week 10 2013 College Football FBS Game Prediction RESULTS by SportPundit 

We finished this 10th prediction week as follows:

39-12 in calling the winner and 27-23-1 against the spread.

Our stats for the season after Week 10 are now 447-127 (78.5%) in calling the winner and 265-214-10 (55.3%) against the spread.

Below are our College Football Prediction Results for Week 10 2013 relying on YPPSYS, our Yards Per Play System and our FBS Ratings and Rankings of all 125 Teams after Week 9 of the 2013 Season.
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.  

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, although our own system of schedule difficulty prevails.

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, but this depends, and we are going to use e.g. Kambour stats on home field occasionally this week, because the standard 3-point home field advantage that we have been giving has not been helping us.

The betting lines ("odds" or "spread") for Week 10 used here were taken from the lines at ESPN Daily Lines (that page sometimes has erroneous plus or minus notation!) viz. Oddsshark used especially for correction, as of Sunday, October 27, 2013. If odds are missing, these are entered initially as "??" and are added later. Note that the lines can and often do change over time, but our predictions do not reflect later changes once we have selected odds here.


Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Cincinnati at Memphis
The Bearcats were favored over the Tigers by 3.5 points.
Our call: 24-23 for Memphis.

This week we are 0-1 in calling the winner and 0-1 against the spread.

Thursday, October 31, 2013 (Halloween)

South Florida at Houston
The Cougars were favored over the Bulls by 14.5 points.
Our call: 37-16 for Houston.
Result: The Cougars prevailed 35-23 although outgaining the Bulls only 388 to 364 yards, as South Florida had possession of the ball for over 38 minutes.
This week we are 1-1 in calling the winner and 0-2 against the spread.

Rice at North Texas
The Mean Green were favored over the Owls by 3.5 points.
Our call: 31-24 for North Texas.
Result: The Mean Green won 28-16 and held Rice scoreless in the second half, even though they were outgained 355 to 253 yards. A 65-yard punt return for a score by Brelan Chancellor put North Texas into the lead. Rice turned the ball over 3 times.
This week we are 2-1 in calling the winner and 1-2 against the spread.

Louisiana-Monroe (LA-Monroe, ULM) at Troy
The Trojans were favored over the Warhawks by 4 points.
Our call: 31-30 for Louisiana Monroe.

Saturday, November 2, 2013

Auburn at Arkansas
The Tigers were favored over the Razorbacks by 8 points.
Our call: 41-24 for Auburn.
Result: The Tigers beat the Razorbacks 35-17 as Arkansas son Gus Malzahn had a victorious homecoming against a school that did not appreciate his football head coaching talents. As they say, justice was done in this game, although the score should have been closer, as Arkansas had 3 turnovers.
This week we are 6-1 in calling the winner and 4-3 against the spread.

Tennessee at Missouri

Result: In a signature win for Eagles' head coach Steve Addazzio, Boston College took advantage of 4 Hokie turnovers to upset Virginia Tech 34-27, in spite of being outgained 446 to 289 yards. That's coaching!
This week we are 7-2 in calling the winner and 6-3 against the spread.

Northern Illinois at Massachusetts
The Huskies were favored over the Minutemen by 23.5 points.
Our call: 44-17 for the Huskies.
