ELA 2018 Game by Game Predictions
« on: August 06, 2018, 08:58:17 AM »

I'll use the already released coaches poll as a starting point, as it's probably the closest indicator to how the AP Poll will start, and what they say in August will probably be sort of close to the CFP rankings.

Can Appy State do it again?

MTSU obviously could beat Vandy.

NIU and Iowa?  Possible.

UDubb and Auburn is interesting, perhaps the top game of the week?

Washington's loss was to Utah, which now announced themselves as a player in the conference race.  They have trips to Pullman and Palo Alto the next two weeks.  Get through that, and the Utes become a real CFP contender.  Oregon, Cal, Arizona and Washington State are all still undefeated too, against meh schedules.

Ask LSU how easy it is to play Troy.   I could see an emotional win vs Colorado and a let down vs Troy, especially if UNL starts a freshman QB

I also think Michigan will beat UNL, but I think this is the game people begin to see UNL as on the rise (not 2018, but going forward).   I expect they'll play well

This Troy isn't nearly as good as last year's version.  They lost all of their starting skill positions players, and 6 starters from a defense that carried them, top 20 nationally in S&P+.  Somehow nobody hired Neal Brown, but that's about the only thing they have going for them going into 2018.  I think Nebraska is still trying to figure out enough stuff that maybe they make some mistakes.  But I still think HUskers win.

My off the cuff pick: Nebraska 31, Troy 23

I also think Michigan will beat UNL, but I think this is the game people begin to see UNL as on the rise (not 2018, but going forward).   I expect they'll play well
Here I disagree, new, young offense, going on the road for the first time, against THAT defense?  And while Harbaugh's struggles against good teams are well documented, his teams have consistently handled the teams they should.  Not just not lose, but not even really be in danger of losing.  Somehow Indiana is the exception there, giving him trouble three times, but aside from the Hoosiers.
Michigan 35, Nebraska 15

Since Transfer QB Noah Vedral won't pursue waiver for immediate eligibility, it could be worse if Frost doesn't start a freshman

This Troy isn't nearly as good as last year's version.  They lost all of their starting skill positions players, and 6 starters from a defense that carried them, top 20 nationally in S&P+.  Somehow nobody hired Neal Brown, but that's about the only thing they have going for them going into 2018.  I think Nebraska is still trying to figure out enough stuff that maybe they make some mistakes.  But I still think HUskers win.

My off the cuff pick: Nebraska 31, Troy 23
Here I disagree, new, young offense, going on the road for the first time, against THAT defense?  And while Harbaugh's struggles against good teams are well documented, his teams have consistently handled the teams they should.  Not just not lose, but not even really be in danger of losing.  Somehow Indiana is the exception there, giving him trouble three times, but aside from the Hoosiers.
Michigan 35, Nebraska 15
all good thoughts.   Maybe its hope, but young teams like to play to their competition.   Maybe it's hope on my part, but I could see a UNL have that up and down season.   Young team, new system, new staff...  They will look both better and worse than their true team performance level.

UNL losing to Purdue at home (outside of injuries) would be as welcomed as Riley losing at Illinois.   Even with Frost as the coach...

WEEK 5
Saturday, September 29
ESPN College Gameday, live from State College, PA
#8 PENN STATE 34, #3 OHIO STATE 31
It is interesting how your projections make this even bigger than it appears presently.  With Michigan (ND) and Michigan State (ASU) losing OOC and Wisconsin (IA) losing a conference game, Penn State and Ohio State would be the only two B1G teams to start ranked and still be undefeated heading into the final weekend of September.  
What a two game stretch for the Nittany Lions.  They host Ohio State on September 29 then get a week off before hosting Michigan State on October 13.  If Penn State wins both they could nearly lock up the B1G-E depending on how Michigan does against Wisconsin.  The Wolverines host Penn State and Wisconsin but play the Spartans and Buckeyes on the road.  If PSU gets to 6-0 then they would win the B1G-E so long as either:
  • They beat Michigan and lose no more than once, or
  • They lose to Michigan but Michigan loses twice (fairly likely anyway and extremely likely if the Wolverines lose at home to the Badgers).  

All that the Buckeyes and Spartans could do is to watch, wait, and hope Penn State loses twice.
