An Addendum to Predicting College Football

Pasted Graphic

Last weekend I traveled to Harvard University and attended NESSIS, the New England Symposium on Statistics in Sports. There, I presented a poster outlining how Charles South and I put together our college football forecasts. It was an incredible Saturday filled with thought provoking conversation and unique insight in the world of sports analytics. NESSIS plans to post some of the bigger events of the conference on its website: nessis.org. To get a closer look at this poster: click here.

Advanced Modeling Techniques for Forecasting College Football Games

This July, Charles South, an instructor at UT Southwestern, and I, gave a presentation at the R Users Group at the University of Dallas. In this talk, Charles and I discuss how to predict college football games. Using data from Clemson University and 247Sports, we used advanced modeling techniques to see what best predicts an out-of-sample set of games.
