College Football Week 7 Predictions and Results 2017 NCAA Division I FBS October 11 to October 14

College Football Week 7 Predictions and Results 2017 NCAA Division I FBS October 11 to October 14

In the upset-heavy 7th Week of the 2017 college football season, in which seven top-25 ranked teams were beaten by unranked teams, we finished:
39-20 in picking the winner
32-26-1 against the spread,
34-25 against the CFPT prediction average, and
32-26-1 against the over/under.

After Week 7, for the season we are a cumulative:
356-98 in picking the winner
247-192-13 against the spread
199-164 against the CFPT average, and

226-220-6 against the over/under. 

Below are the SportPundit predictions and results for Week 7 of the NCAA Division I FBS College Football Season 2017-2018. Predictions THIS WEEK are based in part on this season's performance and in part on the final post-bowl and post-playoff rankings for the past football season. See the SportPundit Preseason College Football Rankings and Ratings for FBS 2017-2018. We also use USA Today Sagarin College Football Ratings, the Massey Ratings and the Dr. Kambour home field advantage calculations. We compose the schedule here using FoxSports, ESPN, NCCA.com and other online sources.
 

Our system is based -- but not exclusively -- on our system of what we have christened as "NAYPPA" stats (net average yards per play advantage), calibrated primarily by adjusting for schedule difficulty, i.e. the teams thus far played, an adjustment which should get better as the season goes along, but this proves not always to be the case. We use yards per play stats published at cfbstats.com. Other adjustments are also made (*=adjustment) because the ypp (yards per play) system is not perfect, often exacerbating stats made against much weaker or much stronger teams, nor can schedule difficulty always be pinpointed with accuracy since many schedules include FCS teams, especially at the beginning of the season.

We often use the Kambour home field advantage calculations or take a standard 3-point home field advantage ala Sagarin into account in predicting the scores.


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.

We use opening lines, as far as possible, taking those opening lines from the College Football Prediction Tracker (CFPT), unless not yet posted, in which case we  use Oddsshark and VegasInsider.com -- also for the over/unders. We add over/unders as available, usually very late for matchups of FCS and FBS teams. All odds and stats are posted here by us WITHOUT ANY guarantee of accuracy, and WITHOUT ANY liability on our part for our posted materials or for links to 3rd party sites. We do our predictions here for fun. If odds and stats are important for the reader, the reader must consult the original sites.


Note that we write "were favored". The odds of the opening line are often changed by the time we make our predictions. We do not compete against those changed odds because we are not competing against bettors. We use the College Football Prediction Tracker (CFPT) prediction average as of the date that we find it published (this week for games prior to Saturday, the CFPT of Wednesday, October 11, 2017, 10:14 AM, for Saturday games, the CFPT of Saturday, October 14, 8:31:26 AM)). Note that there is no line given at CFPT for games between FCS and FBS opponents.

College Football Week 6 Predictions and Results 2017 NCAA Division I FBS October 4 to October 7

College Football Week 6 Predictions and Results 2017 NCAA Division I FBS October 4 to October 7

For the 6th Week of the 2017 college football season, our record was:
45-13 in picking the winner, 36-20-1 against the spread, 37-19 against the CFPT prediction average, and 26-31 against the over/under.

317-78 in picking the winner
215-166-12 against the spread
165-139 against the CFPT average,
and 194-194-5 against the over/under.
 

Below are the SportPundit predictions and results for Week 6 of the NCAA Division I FBS College Football Season 2017-2018. Predictions THIS WEEK are based in part on this season's performance, with one eye also on the final post-bowl and post-playoff rankings for the previous football season. See the SportPundit Preseason College Football Rankings and Ratings for FBS 2017-2018. We also use USA Today Sagarin College Football Ratings, the Massey Ratings and the Dr. Kambour home field advantage calculations. We compose the schedule here using FoxSports, ESPN, NCCA.com and other online sources.
 

Our system is based -- but not exclusively -- on our system of what we have christened as "NAYPPA" stats (net average yards per play advantage), calibrated primarily by adjusting for schedule difficulty, i.e. the teams thus far played, an adjustment which should get better as the season goes along, but this proves not always to be the case. We use yards per play stats published at cfbstats.com. Other adjustments are also made (*=adjustment) because the ypp (yards per play) system is not perfect, often exacerbating stats made against much weaker or much stronger teams, nor can schedule difficulty always be pinpointed with accuracy since many schedules include FCS teams, especially at the beginning of the season.

We may use the Kambour home field advantage calculations or take a standard 3-point home field advantage ala Sagarin into account in predicting the scores.

May the best team win.

We use opening lines, as far as possible, taking those opening lines from the College Football Prediction Tracker (CFPT), unless not yet posted, in which case we  use Oddsshark and VegasInsider.com -- also for the over/unders. We add over/unders as available, usually very late for matchups of FCS and FBS teams. All odds and stats are posted here by us WITHOUT ANY guarantee of accuracy, and WITHOUT ANY liability on our part for our posted materials or for links to 3rd party sites. We do our predictions here for fun. If odds and stats are important for the reader, the reader must consult the original sites.

Note that we write "were favored". The odds of the opening line are often changed by the time we make our predictions. We do not compete against those changed odds because we are not competing against bettors. We use the College Football Prediction Tracker (CFPT) prediction average as of the date that we find it published (this week Monday, October 2, 2017, 3:54:34 PM). Note that there is no line given at CFPT for games between FCS and FBS opponents.

    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."
