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.

SportPundit FBS Raw Yards Per Play Rankings (After Week 13 of Play, 2018)

These raw rankings MUST be adjusted for schedule difficulty, which can make a big ranking difference for any given team, but each reader can make that adjustment according to their own preference.

The data below are based on data found at cfbstats.com.

The table below lists all 130 FBS college football teams in NCAA Division 1 ranked by Yards Per Play (offense minus defense = total ypp difference). We call this parameter NAYPPA (Net Average Yards Per Play Advantage).

Our call: 27-24 for Nebraska.... prognosticated as a true Nebraska alum, we hope that Scott Frost and staff "magic" has now caught on with the team.
Result: The Huskers tied the game 28-28 in the final minutes but could not hold on defensively and gave up a 41-yard field goal as time expired to lose 31-28.
Nebraska finished its 2018 error-plagued but improvement-marked season 4-8 with a cumulative 6.31 yards per play (ypp) average on offense and a 5.81 ypp on defense as compared to their 2017 5.59 ypp on offense and 6.34 ypp on defense.

2018 ypp offense ypp defense   total ypp difference
          6.31              5.81             =      (plus)   + 0.50 ypp        
2017 ypp offense ypp defense   total ypp difference
          5.59              6.34             =      (minus) - 0.75 yp
That is a net whole-year improvement of 1.25 ypp per game offense + defense
or an improvement of 12.5 points per game in 2018 over the performance in 2017 -- according to our system of callibration.

We estimated prior to the start of the 2018 season, based on the success of Scott Frost and staff at UCF, that the Huskers would achieve ca. 6.00 ypp on offense and ca. 5.00 ypp on defense in 2018. We were too optimistic on the defense and not optimistic enough on the offense, and the total improvement was ca. 5 points per game less than predicted. The won-loss record was worse than the stats would indicate, but the Huskers were error-plagued in 2018 and lost a number of games that the Big Red should have won. Nevertheless, Cornhusker fans can look forward to 2019 optimistically.

The above stats are based on stats found at cfbstats.com.

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 (this week, Monday, November 19, 2018, 10:22 AM). The CFPT does not include games between FCS and FBS opponents. The teams are FBS teams unless marked as FCS.

    "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."

    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."
