Plan Accordingly: Top Games – Week 14

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.


All Games Pct. Upset Picks Pct.
Last Week 18-6 .750 2-2 .500
Overall 109-66 .623 15-17 .469
