Bowl Game Pick ’em Results

This post was originally published here

If you haven't read my previous post on picking bowl game winners with elote, this may not make a whole lot of sense, but basically I wrote a rating system, trained it on the college football season thus far, and used it to predict winners for every bowl game. In this post, I'm tracking how it did.

I'll update this as the games happen, currently we're at 6/15 wins, not great.

All matchups are in the format: “team I picked to win – team I picked to lose”

Matchup Win / Loss
West Virginia – Utah
N Illinois – Duke
UCLA – Kansas State
Florida State – Southern Miss
BC – Iowa
Purdue – Arizona
Missou – Texas
Navy – Virginia
Oklahoma St. – VT
TCU – Stanford
Michigan St. – Washington St.
Texas A&M – Wake Forest
Arizona St. – NC State
Northwestern – Kentucky
New Mexico State – Utah State
Ohio State – USC
Miss St. – Louisville
Memphis – Iowa St.
Penn St. – Washington
Miami – Wisconsin
USCe – Michigan
Auburn – UCF
LSU – Notre Dame
Oklahoma – UGA
Clemson – Alabama
N. Texas – Troy WRONG
Georgia State – WKU RIGHT
Oregon – Boise St. WRONG
Colorado St. – Marshall WRONG
Arkansas St. – MTSU WRONG
Grambling – NC A&T WRONG
