Plan Accordingly: Top Games – Week 5

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: 6-3 (.667); Upset picks: 1-2 (.333)

Overall: 22-15 (.595); Upsets: 3-6 (.333)

Without further ado: the games. All times AZ.

    So, according to super-science we have no change of making a game of it in Pasadena? This is a depressing turn of events…

    Hope you’re doing well,
