Bowl Game Watchability

Little late in the game but:

-Watchability measures how good the teams are and how likely the game is to be close (way more detail on Watchability)
-The more green a team is shaded, the better its chance to win; the more red, the worse
-Ranking (when listed) is this week's BCS ranking
-All times Pacific
-Obviously home/away is meaningless but I just thought it was dumb to put TeamA/TeamB or some other such nonsense

Oh Oregon. Is there going to come a year you don't choke up a game? I guess the "Helmet Symbol stands for National Championships" joke is good for another year :)

2013 College Football Modeling: Week 11 Viewing Guide

This Thursday in college football has been circled on my calendar for a long time. When we look back at the 2013 college football regular season, there will have been roughly 20 games with Watchability rating greater than 70. 

There are two such games tonight. 

In two huge games with massive BCS implications, Baylor has the chance to show that they belong with Bama/Oregon/FSU/OhioState, and Oregon has the chance to say to FSU "We scoff at your wins over Clemson and Miami (Fl), beat a real top ten team then come see us."

Also this week, there's a game between Alabama and LSU with some BCS implications of its own. The model thinks Bama winning handily is a pretty likely outcome so it's not so high on the Watchability.
