Five Best Games of Each Week as Projected by FPI

I plugged ESPN’s recently released projected FPI ratings into my model and this is what it came up with as the best games to watch each week.

This is not a list of the “biggest” games or most important or anything like that. It’s what my spreadsheet predicts will be the most fun to watch. Also, my spreadsheet doesn’t like when one team is rated a lot higher than the other, thus Clemson doesn’t appear on this list but once. FPI thinks they’re going to beat the pants off everybody.

I also took an average rating of the top five games from each week and ranked the weeks. This will be a good tool to help you decide if you’re going to take that trip to your cousin’s fall wedding or not.
