I had hoped to complete this analysis by the beginning of the bowl series. Owing to my continual adjustment to a different living situation along with being on Pacific time, I am finding it difficult to complete projects in the time I give myself to do them. I did get through nearly half of the bowl games by 5pm Pacific. What I have outlined are what I believe to be the most important stats to determine who should win. Experience by schools and coaches, along with travel distance, common opponents, and conference strength of schedule are all given weight here. For comparison’s sake, I use the consensus odds presented by http://www.vegasinsider.com
I also sourced College Football Reference and Team Rankings for further stats to help present this study.
