Eventually the hot streak had to come to a close, and Week 9’s madness proved to be too much for NCAA ’13 to handle. Have I lost confidence? Not a chance, my friend.
A 2-3 week is, by far, the worst we’ve seen in the past six weeks but consider the following before you jump ship.
NCAA ’13 did pick Alabama to beat Mississippi State 35-10, and the final score turned out to be 38-7. It also predicted that Tyler Russell would finish 16-of-34 for 161 yards and an interception. His final, actual numbers for the game were 15-of-30 for 169 yards and an interception.
Oh, and it also pegged Kent State to beat Rutgers. Even in a down-ish week, it has magical powers.
For those new to this weekly staple, here’s the gist. Using NCAA ’13 we simulate all the games from the college football week and report the findings. These results are not doctored, and they have been incredibly accurate.
We’re 28-7 in the past seven weeks, and the overall record is still solid. Let’s get right to a fascinating Week 10 slate, which features two obvious feature games.
