College Football Playoff "FourCast"    


The version of the CFP FourCast model used to develop the current ranking shown herein would have correctly identified 58 of the 60 top-four teams over the final five weeks of the 2014, 2015, and 2016 seasons in which the CFP Selection Committee posted a ranking. The top four teams would have been in the correct ranking position in 49 of 60 cases across those 15 weeks. The average miss over the full CFP top 25 would have been roughly one ranking position.
