Predicting 2016’s Biggest College Football Games Remaining

sportsformulator-com-header

We’re at the midpoint of the 2016 college football season.  Many teams have played their way out of contention for the college football playoff.

There are still several big games left in the 2016 season.  We decided to predict the 10 games that’ll shape the rest of the college football season.

college-football-big-games-2016

College Football Predictions

10 – Washington at Washington State (November 25)

This could be Washington’s last hurdle to a spot in the Pac-12 Championship and undefeated season.  Mike Leach’s team would love to end that hope.

9 – Auburn at Alabama (November 26)

Bama has been rolling this season.  Auburn is looking to get better week  by week and in rivalry games, you never know what could happen.  The Tide should roll past Auburn again this year and on to the SEC Championship game.

TEAM WIN % SCORE
Auburn 34% 21
Alabama 66% 31

8 – Florida at Florida State (November 26)

The winner of this game really won’t get into consideration for the playoff but the winner boosts their conference with a win.  These late season non-conference games can influence the committee.

TEAM WIN % SCORE
Florida 56% 28
Florida State 44% 24

7 – Michigan at Michigan State (October 29)

Michigan State has nothing left to play for other than to wreck the Wolverines season.  The Wolverines want revenge after the last minute loss to Sparty last year.  Look for Harbaugh to put points up this year and not let it be decided in the final minutes.

TEAM WIN % SCORE
Michigan 84% 40
Michigan State 16% 18

6 – Oklahoma State at Oklahoma (December 3)

Bedlam could be even bigger this year if not for the horrendous miscall that cost Oklahoma State a win against Central Michigan.  This one could crown the Big 12 Champ.

TEAM WIN % SCORE
Oklahoma State 37% 31
Oklahoma 63% 40

5 – Clemson at Florida State (October 29)

Clemson is still on track to make it back to the college football playoff.  The ‘Noles will be in the unfamiliar position of playing spoiler.  They could still make it to the ACC Championship with a win here so look for this one to go late in the fourth before being decided.

TEAM WIN % SCORE
Clemson 57% 31
Florida State 43% 26

4 – Nebraska at Ohio State (November 5)

Nebraska has flown under the radar this year by playing a weak schedule.  This could be a huge game if each remains undefeated.

TEAM WIN % SCORE
Nebraska 25% 20
Ohio State 75% 37

3 – LSU at Texas A&M (November 24)

LSU can have the biggest impact the rest of the season as they play both Texas A&M and Alabama.  The Tigers have looked much better since Ed Orgeron took over.  He knows he needs wins in these games to get the interim title removed.  Look for LSU to challenge teams the rest of the season.

TEAM WIN % SCORE
LSU 46% 23
Texas A&M 54% 26

2 – Alabama at LSU (November 5)

Bama will come in to this game off games against Tennessee and Texas A&M.  LSU will be waiting for them to knock off the Tide.  Many of the players think Les Miles was fired for his inability to beat Nick Saban.  Tiger Stadium will be rocking for this game but the Tide should keep winning.

TEAM WIN % SCORE
Alabama 58% 27
LSU 42% 22

1 – Michigan at Ohio State (November 26)

This game is far and away the biggest game remaining.  Both have been challenged by Wisconsin but won this season.  There are potential hurdles for each on their way to this showdown but if each shows up undefeated, the hype for this game will be off the charts!

TEAM WIN % SCORE
Ohio State 44% 27
Michigan 56% 31

College Football Predictions Week 6 – 2016

Using our predictive formula we’ve predicted every college football game on the board in week 6.

Week 6 is highlighted by Alabama at Arkansas, Oklahoma vs. Texas, LSU at Florida and Florida State at Miami.

Arkansas has been competitive with Alabama in the past.  The Tide showed they can be beaten in the passing game at Ole Miss two weeks ago.  Can Arkansas exploit that?

Oklahoma and Texas enter this year’s game with a similar narrative.  Charlie Strong needs to win or it could be the end of his tenure in Austin.  The Longhorns won last year and saved him.  Can

LSU broke out with 42 points against Missouri Saturday night.  Can the offense do that against a stout Florida defense?  Ed Orgeron seems to have sparked the Tigers in his first week replacing Les Miles.  Will the Gators stop it?

Miami is the favorite against Florida State for the first time in years.  How will they handle that?  Mark Richt has elevated the Canes in just a few weeks as the head man at the U.  A win over the rival ‘Noles will get people talking about the Canes as potential ACC contenders.

The week gets started early this week as we have a Sunbelt showdown on Wednesday night.

College Football Predictions Week 5 – 2016

SFpageheader

Les Miles is out at LSU in a surprise move.  At least surprising to be fired this early in the season.  Can Ed Orgeron finish out the season getting LSU to their full potential?

Three huge match-ups this week as Clemson hosts Louisville, Stanford visits Washington and Michigan plays Wisconsin.  These games will create national contenders.

Friday at Noon ET, get college football ATS picks live via SportsFormulator on Periscope.

College Football Predictions Week 3 – 2016

SFpageheader

Week 3 of the 2016 college football season is loaded with big games.  The race to the College Football Playoff will be greatly impacted by this weekend.

Big Games in Week 3

The top game of the weekend is Ohio State at Oklahoma.  The Buckeyes go on the road against a Sooners team that doesn’t want to fall to 1-2.

In the SEC, Alabama travels to Ole Miss.  The Rebels have won two straight over Bama so the Tide will want revenge.  Chad Kelly better be ready for the Tide’s fierce defense.

Florida State at Louisville is a huge game for the ACC.  The winner here becomes a favorite to win the ACC and make the playoff.

Using our predictive formula we’ve predicted every college football game on the board in week 3.  We predict several upsets this weekend.

Week 2 College Football results – 41 of 46 (89%) SU and 26-18-2 (59%) ATS.

2015 Recap:  8-6 (6-3 in Pac-12).  The year got off to a bad start for the USC Trojans with the sage of Steve Sarkisian.  They hope the coaching carousel is over with Clay Helton now at the helm.  The Trojan rallied and won the Pac-12 South.

They kick off the 2016 college football season against the defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide in Arlington, TX.

2016 Predicted Record:  9-3.  The Trojans could surprise and be national contenders this year.  They have the talent but can they win the close games this season?  We project four toss-up games for them.  If they win them, it sets up a huge game against Notre Dame to close the season and a repeat trip to the Pac-12 Championship game.

2015 Recap:  8-5 (5-4 in Pac-12). The UCLA Bruins football team had an up and down season that ended with a disappointing performance losing to Nebraska in a bowl game.

Josh Rosen returns but it’s team with a lot of turnover.  They open at Texas A&M which is a good test for Jim Mora’s squad.  If they come together, they could challenge for the Pac-12 South, if not, they’re going to a lower tier bowl.

19-Nov USC 49%

2016 Predicted Record:  10-2.  The Bruins have talent but will need inexperience players to step and make plays right away.  They schedule is favorable with many of the tough games happening at home.  How will the young players play on the road will determine how the Bruins do in 2016.
