FBS College Football Prediction Results Week 1 NCAA Division I 2016-2017 Season

College Football Prediction Results Week 1 FBS NCAA 2016-2017 Season

This 1st week we finished 69-17 in calling the winner, 42-35-9 against the spread, 20-21 against the CFPT average, and 42-40-4 against the over/under.

The SportPundit prediction results (found below) for NCAA Division I FBS College Football in ESPN Week 1 were based primarily on our Preseason College Football Rankings FBS 2016-2017 by SportPundit. We also looked at the USA Today Sagarin College Football 2016 Starting Ratings, the Massey Ratings for 2016 NCAAI Football and the Dr. Kambour home field advantage calculations. The first week was marked by many great games in which the favorite prevailed, but there were also several major and minor upsets and a few near misses. It looks to be another exciting season.

Before you look at our results below, please note that the SportPundit system is based on net average yards per play stats, calibrated primarily by adjusting for schedule difficulty, i.e. the teams thus far played. Other adjustments are also made (*=adjustment). We take the cumulative yards per play stat data from cfbstats.com and from the college and university football athletic pages online. For the first weeks, we use last season's stats, unless a team has already shown a perceptible change in play this season.

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. 

For this week, we used odds posted at CFPT (The College Football Prediction Tracker) Wednesday, August 10, 2016, 10:14 AM, viz. VegasInsider.com viz. Oddsshark. We compete against the prediction average at CFPT and the over/under ("O/U") of the online betting sites, as available, without ANY guarantee of accuracy, and without any liability for our posted materials. We do this for fun. If it is important, the reader must consult the original sites. We use the opening line ("OL") if available, not the updated line ("UL), as we compete against opening odds, if possible. We call the score and not the spread as such because our stats permit that calculation. However, we do compete against the betting "spread" and not the call of the actual score.

For example, our call was 48-31 for the California Golden Bears over the Hawaii Warriors, a spread of 17 points. The opening line was 22 points. Cal won 51-31 so we won that one. For over/under, our total was 79 points, i.e. 48 plus 31, so we beat the O/U of 62. The CFPT prediction average at the time we looked at it was 29.59 points so we beat that (it closed lower at 25.3 points, but we do not compete against the final prediction average because we make our predictions in advance of that).

    Both book volumes contain the following basic book description:
    "Alice Cunningham Fletcher observed in her 1902 publication in the American Anthropologist
    that there is ample evidence that some ancient cultures in Native America, e.g. the Pawnee in Nebraska,
    geographically located their villages according to patterns seen in stars of the heavens.
    See Alice C. Fletcher, Star Cult Among the Pawnee--A Preliminary Report,
    American Anthropologist, 4, 730-736, 1902.
    Ralph N. Buckstaff wrote:
    "These Indians recognized the constellations as we do, also the important stars,
    drawing them according to their magnitude.
    The groups were placed with a great deal of thought and care and show long study.
    ... They were keen observers....
    The Pawnee Indians must have had a knowledge of astronomy comparable to that of the early white men."
    See Ralph N. Buckstaff, Stars and Constellations of a Pawnee Sky Map,
    American Anthropologist, Vol. 29, Nr. 2, April-June 1927, pp. 279-285, 1927.
    In our book, we take these observations one level further
    and show that megalithic sites and petroglyphic rock carving and pictographic rock art in Native America,
    together with mounds and earthworks, were made to represent territorial geographic landmarks
    placed according to the stars of the sky using the ready map of the starry sky
    in the hermetic tradition, "as above, so below".
    That mirror image of the heavens on terrestrial land is the "Sky Earth" of Native America,
    whose "rock stars" are the real stars of the heavens, "immortalized" by rock art petroglyphs, pictographs,
    cave paintings, earthworks and mounds of various kinds (stone, earth, shells) on our Earth.
    These landmarks were placed systematically
    in North America, Central America (Meso-America) and South America
    and can to a large degree be reconstructed as the Sky Earth of Native America."
