College Football Prediction Results "Week 2" 2018 NCAA Division I FBS September 7 to September 8

College Football Prediction Results "Week 2" 2018 NCAA Division I FBS September 7 to September 8

Week 2 was a rough week for prognosticating because we still rely a lot on our 2017 final season stats, which of course have now become out of date. Weather also played a role.

For Week 2 of the 2018-2019 FBS College Football Season we finished:
58-20 in picking the winner,
35-41-2 against the spread,
22-27 against the CFPT average, and
38-39-1 against the over/under.

For the 2018-2019 FBS College Football Season we are an accumulated:
129-37 in picking the winner,
79-80-6 against the spread,
42-51 against the CFPT average, and
90-72-4 against the over/under.


See our previous Week 1 predictions for an explanation of our system.

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 betting lines ("the spread", "the line"), as far as possible, and thus write "were favored" or "was favored" since odds change over time. We do not compete against changed odds because we are not competing against bettors. We take opening lines primarily from the College Football Prediction Tracker (CFPT), Sportbet.com, Oddsshark and VegasInsider.com -- also for the over/unders, except for CFPT, which does not have them. We use the College Football Prediction Tracker (CFPT) prediction average as of the date that we find it. The CFPT does not include games between FCS and FBS opponents. The teams are FBS teams unless marked as FCS.

Colorado at Nebraska
The Cornhuskers were favored over the Buffaloes by 4 points.
The CFPT prediction average favored the Huskers by 1.88 points.
The over/under was 62.5 points.
Our call: 41-27 for Nebraska. Our preseason call for this game was 47-14 for Nebraska, based on season prognostication of a Husker 3-TD per game improvement, as the Scott Frost coaching staff achieved at UCF. But the Colorado win over Colorado State 45-13, outgaining the Rams 596 yards to 284 yards, as compared to a 17-3 win over the Rams in 2017, both on a "neutral" field, suggests that the Buffaloes may also be substantially improved. Indeed, Colorado State last year lost to Alabama by only 41-23, so caution is advised. We have therefore had to scale down our predicted winning margin substantially for the Huskers.
Result: We are great fans of new Husker football head coach Scott Frost and heavily supported his hiring. That said, the Huskers are clearly still a work in progress under Frost and his coaching staff. Nebraska outgained Colorado 565 to 395 yards total offense but committed 3 turnovers in losing 33-28
Thus far for Week 2 of the 2018-2019 FBS College Football Season we are:

Thus far for Week 2 of the 2018-2019 FBS College Football Season we are:
17-7 in picking the winner,
12-12 against the spread,
9-11 against the CFPT average, and
11-13 against the over/under. 

Memphis at Navy
The Tigers were favored over the Midshipmen by 3.5 points.
The CFPT prediction average favored Memphis by 8.96 points.
The over/under was 71.5 points.
Our call: 44-31 for Memphis.
Result: Navy scored 13 unanswered 4th quarter points to win 22-21 as rain hampered the offenses.
Thus far for Week 2 of the 2018-2019 FBS College Football Season we are:

12-13 against the spread,

The Tar Heels were favored over the Pirates by 14 points.
The CFPT prediction average favored North Carolina by 14.37 points.
The over/under was 59 points.
Our call: 41-17 for North Carolina.
Result: East Carolina lost last week to FCS North Carolina A&T, so that their 41-19 thumping of the Tar Heels is an eye-opener. In fact, however, A&T, as we read at ESPN is a very strong team "coming off a Historically Black Colleges and Universities championship win over Grambling and a 12-0 season". Hence, their win over the Pirates becomes even more impressive and the Pirates win over the Tar Heels becomes less surprising.
Thus far for Week 2 of the 2018-2019 FBS College Football Season we are:

12-14 against the spread,

    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."
