Do preseason college football predictions seem difficult to make?
The trouble starts with the unpredictability of the young men that play the game. The random bounce of the ball, such as during a fumble recovery, makes predicting the season even worse.
However, there’s a hidden factor that makes accurate college football predictions possible. It doesn’t work in the NFL, but this factor allowed my preseason analytics to pick the winner in 70.8% of college football games the past 3 seasons.
Hi, my name is Ed Feng, and I’m the founder of The Power Rank, a site that uses analytics to make accurate football predictions. My numbers and content have appeared in Sports Illustrated, Bleacher Report, and Grantland among other media outlets.
You can look at my predictions in The 2017 College Football Win Totals Report. In addition to a win total for 130 bowl subdivision teams, the report discusses:

- The market driven adjustment for Michigan in 2017.
- The sneaky resource you want to use with these computer predictions; not many recognize its predictive power.
You can get this report by signing up for my free email newsletter.
But that’s not all you get. Each week during the season, the newsletter contains a sample of my best college and pro football predictions usually reserved for paying members of the site.
When I first thought about signing up, I was unsure about the content coming into my inbox. I didn’t want spam. However, I found great and interesting content, catered at a frequency I enjoy. I particularly like the statistical analysis that challenges typical ways of thinking.
