College Football Game Prediction RESULTS Week 7 2016 FBS by SportPundit

College Football Game Prediction RESULTS Week 7 2016 FBS by SportPundit
(updated periodically as results come in, but not at once, and sometimes later)

Notice: Our over/under results in predicting the total score are nearly exactly the opposite of our results against the spread. How could that be, using the same system? We have examined the data and determined that our own spread has too often been too high based on our equation of .1 of our rating points as equatable with 1 point on the scoreboard. We are going to scale that back this coming week to .1 rating point = .7 scoreboard points. In other words, if a team rated at +1.0 met a team rated at -2.0 under our system, that is a difference of 30 .1 rating points which we have thus far equated as 30 scoreboard points -- which has proven to be too many. Under the revised system, under which we would have done much better over the season, the predicted spread would only be calculated as 21 points rather than 30. The calculation is then 30 of .1 rating points x .7 = 21 scoreboard points, nevertheless retaining the same over/under for total score. That could improve our prediction results. We shall see.

This 7th Week we finished
41-13 in calling the winner
20-33-1 against the spread
21-32 against the CFPT prediction average
and 32-22 against the over/under.

After Week 7 our cumulative season results thus far are:
344-111 in picking the winner
203-227-19 against the spread
158-197 against the CFPT average, and
228-203-15 against the over/under.
__________

Below are our -- SportPundit -- prediction RESULTS for NCAA Division I FBS College Football in ESPN Week 7, based primarily on our After Week 6 College Football Rankings and Ratings for FBS 2016-2017 by SportPundit. We also look at the USA Today Sagarin College Football 2016 Ratings, the Massey Ratings for 2016 NCAA I Football and the Dr. Kambour home field advantage calculations.

Our 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) because the ypp 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. We take the cumulative yards per play stat data from cfbstats.com and from the college and university football athletic pages online.

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.

This week we took the opening line from the CFPT (College Football Prediction Tracker), as posted Monday, October 10, 2016 10:22 AM. We take the -- usually later-posted -- opening over/under from Oddsshark viz. VegasInsider.com. All odds and stats are posted without ANY guarantee of accuracy, and without any liability on our parts for our posted materials or links to them. 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), since we compete against opening odds, if possible. We call the score and not the spread as such because our stats permit that calculation.

We write "were favored". The odds of the opening line are usually changed by the time we make our predictions. We do not compete against those changed odds. We used the CFPT as of the above date.

Duke at Louisville
The Cardinals were favored over the Blue Devils by 31 points. The CFPT prediction average favored Louisville by 27.45 points. The O/U (over/under) was 70.45 points.
Our Call: 52-10 for Louisville.
Result: Duke intentionally ran down the clock on most plays to keep the ball away from the Louisville offense as much as possible. NCAA teams and officials should keep in mind that college football makes so much money because it is predominantly ENTERTAINMENT. Playing slow motion football sets a bad crowd example by telling the world rather than "we came to play", that "we came to sit". Maybe they should send the Blue Devils to Congress where sitting without action has become a political way of life. But it is no way to fill the stadiums which, as it is, see increasingly fewer paying patrons. Duke still lost 24-14.
This 7th Week we are thus far 2-0 in calling the winner, 1-1 against the spread, 1-1 against the CFPT prediction average, and 0-2 against the over/under.

North Carolina State (NC State)  at Clemson
The Tigers were favored over the Wolfpack by 16 points. The CFPT prediction average favored Clemson by 20.06 points. The O/U (over/under) was 56.5 points.
Our Call: 41-14 for Clemson.
Result: In a real surprise, the Wolfpack played the Tigers to a standstill in regulation time, but then missed the potential 33-yard game-ending and winning field goal as time expired, so that the game was decided in overtime in favor of Clemson 24-17.
This 7th Week we are thus far 6-0 in calling the winner, 3-3 against the spread, 3-3 against the CFPT prediction average, and 3-3 against the over/under.

This 7th Week we are thus far 7-0 in calling the winner, 3-4 against the spread, 3-4 against the CFPT prediction average, and 4-3 against the over/under. 

West Virginia at Texas Tech
The Red Raiders were favored over the Mountaineers by 1 point. The CFPT prediction average favored Texas Tech by 1.27 points. The O/U (over/under) was 80.5 points.

Vanderbilt at Georgia

Our Call: 35-17 for Georgia.
Result: When a team has to settle for too many field goals (Georgia had 4) then the offensive playcalling is suspect, as Vanderbilt relied on defense and special teams to pull out a 17-16 upset win over the Bulldogs, even though Georgia outgained them 421 to 171 yards total offense.
This 7th Week we are thus far 8-1 in calling the winner, 4-5 against the spread, 4-5 against the CFPT prediction average, and 5-4 against the over/under.

The Bobcats were favored over the Eagles by 9.5 points. The CFPT prediction average favored Ohio by 9.88 points. The O/U (over/under) was 60 points.
Our Call: 30-27 for Eastern Michigan. Our stats otherwise favor Ohio by 10 points but we see continuous improvement at Eastern Michigan this year under 3rd year head coach Chris Creighton. Ohio is always unpredictable. 
Result: Eastern Michigan continued its season success by beating Ohio 27-20.
This 7th Week we are thus far 14-3 in calling the winner, 6-10-1 against the spread, 9-7 against the CFPT prediction average, and 11-6 against the over/under.

The game was seen as even. Take your pick. The CFPT prediction average favored Kent State by 2.05 points. The O/U (over/under) was 44 points.

This 7th Week we are thus far 14-4 in calling the winner, 6-11-1 against the spread, 9-8 against the CFPT prediction average, and 12-6 against the over/under. 

Western Michigan at Akron
The Broncos were favored over the Zips by 10 points. The CFPT prediction average favored Western Michigan by 13.30 points. The O/U (over/under) was 70 points.
Our Call: 38-31 for Western Michigan. This should be a very interesting game. Our stats would favor the Broncos by about 10 points. Western Michigan is eyeing an unbeaten season if they can get by Toledo in their last game. But first they have to beat a much improved Akron Zips team who will surely be up for this game.
Result: The undefeated Broncos showed strength and shut out the Zips 41-0
This 7th Week we are thus far 15-4 in calling the winner, 6-12-1 against the spread, 9-9 against the CFPT prediction average, and 13-6 against the over/under.

Result: The Rockets struggled to a 42-35 win over Bowling Green.
This 7th Week we are thus far 18-4 in calling the winner, 6-15-1 against the spread, 9-12 against the CFPT prediction average, and 14-8 against the over/under. 

Central Michigan at Northern Illinois
The Chippewas were favored over the Huskies by 3 points. The CFPT prediction average favored Central Michigan by 1.60 points. The O/U (over/under) was 60.5 points.

This 7th Week we are thus far 20-4 in calling the winner, 8-15-1 against the spread, 11-12 against the CFPT prediction average, and 15-9 against the over/under. 

Kansas at Baylor
The Bears were favored over the Jayhawks by 35 points. The CFPT prediction average favored Baylor by 30.05 points. The O/U (over/under) was 64.5 points.
Our Call: 38-17 for Baylor. Our stats would favor Baylor by 35 points plus the home field advantage, but Kansas lost by only 1 point to TCU last week so the stats here are probably of little use if that score reflects Jayhawk improvement over the season thus far.

Result: Baylor had no difficulty with the Jayhawks and led 42-0 at halftime, winning the game 49-7.
This 7th Week we are thus far 21-4 in calling the winner, 8-16-1 against the spread, 11-13 against the CFPT prediction average, and 16-9 against the over/under. 

Alabama at Tennessee
The Crimson Tide were favored over the Volunteers by 10.5 points. The CFPT prediction average favored Alabama by 10.02 points. The O/U (over/under) was 55 points.
Our Call: 31-27 for Alabama. This should be a good game and since we have relations in Tennessee, we will root for the Volunteers. Our stats favor 'Bama by 8 minus the Vols home field advantage.
Result: The Crimson Tide dominated the Volunteers 49-10, outgaining Tennessee by 594 to 163 yards total offense.
This 7th Week we are thus far 22-4 in calling the winner, 8-17-1 against the spread, 11-14 against the CFPT prediction average, and 17-9 against the over/under. 

Nebraska at Indiana
The Cornhuskers were favored over the Hoosiers by 7 points. The CFPT prediction average favored Nebraska by 6.57 points. The O/U (over/under) was 56.5 points.
Our Call: 31-30 for Indiana. As a Nebraska alum, we think the Huskers may be a bit over-rated due to a very weak schedule. If that is true, they could lose this game to an Indiana team that looks about equal on paper. Our stats favor the Big Red by 4 minus the Hoosier home field advantage, which Kambour gives as 4.2590.

Result: The Huskers raced to a 17-0 1st-quarter lead, assisted on their first TD drive by a bizarre deflected catch by Brandon Reilly that set up the TD. Indiana then nearly caught up with a safety, two field goals and a TD to make the score 17-15 at the end of 3 quarters, as the Big Red prevailed 27-22.
This 7th Week we are thus far 22-5 in calling the winner, 9-17-1 against the spread, 12-14 against the CFPT prediction average, and 17-10 against the over/under. 

North Carolina at Miami of Florida
The Hurricanes were favored over the Tar Heels by 7 points. The CFPT prediction average favored Miami by 9.45 points. The O/U (over/under) was 60 points.
Our Call: 37-27 for Miami of Florida. The Hurricanes' loss to the Seminoles raised some questions, so it will be instructive to see how this game turns out.

Result: The Tar Heels upset the Hurricanes 20-13.
This 7th Week we are thus far 22-6 in calling the winner, 9-18-1 against the spread, 12-15 against the CFPT prediction average, and 18-10 against the over/under.

Result: The Wildcats outscored the Spartans 54-40.
This 7th Week we are thus far 22-7 in calling the winner, 9-19-1 against the spread, 12-16 against the CFPT prediction average, and 19-10 against the over/under.

    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."
