Week 1: Mid-Week Predictions

So here we are with the first predictions of the new football season. Just a reminder that all the rankings here are the same as they were at the end of last year; they'll slowly start to adjust as our computers get data from this year. Given that, it's a little difficult to predict this first week or so, but we're still putting it out there. Also remember that we only examine games between two Division I (FBS) schools, so when Powerhouse U. plays Sister Mary's School of the Blind, that won't show up here, either. It's almost as if many of the big schools don't want to risk losing to a middle-tier out-of-conference opponent. Weird, right?
