Plan Accordingly: Top Games – Week 3

Games are ranked like recruits: 5 stars, 4 stars, and 3 stars. Just like in recruiting, 2-star and 1-star games won’t be given much attention.

Games are ranked using a super-scientific system comparing the overall quality of the two teams and the closeness of the match-up. The quality of each team is found using Brian Fremeau’s, Bill Connelly’s, and ESPN’s advanced stats ranking systems.

Last week’s picks: 4-2 (.667); Upset picks: 2-1 (.667)

Overall: 9-6 (.600); Upsets: 2-3 (.400)

Without further ado: the games. All times AZ.
