As we did with the NFL, we will utilize our football simulation technology, statistical research capabilities, up-to-the minute roster and depth chart information and our Beyond the Boxscore feature to preview the upcoming college football season. Beginning Monday, August 11th, BtB will preview a college football week each day for 15 days, including scores and updated standings for each week. At the conclusion of those previews, we will present our bowl match-ups with results and final updated pre-season Power Rankings (see original rankings below).
For this analysis, each regular season FBS game is simulated 1,000 times and the average of those games becomes the projected result for the week. This allows us to account for every player and stat as well as assign probabilities of winning for each team for every game.
Rosters and depth charts are up-to-date and as accurate as possible as of August 1, 2008. A schedule of upcoming college preview content is below. Previews should be posted by noon ET. Check back each day for updates.
