ESPN has released some more predictions for the 2019 college football season. The Football Power Index has been updated ahead of the upcoming year.
For those unfamiliar with the FPI:
FPI is our predictive rating and ranking system for college football. It’s set to the scale of points per game above average, and it fuels all of our predictions and projections (out later this offseason) before and during the season.
On Monday, we covered five teams that ESPN’s computer is projecting will disappoint during the 2019 season. There are some notable teams on the list.
Today, we’re covering teams that will do the opposite.
Which teams are projected to be better than expected in 2019?
Here are three.
FPI rating: No. 5
FPI rating: No. 4
3. Penn State
FPI rating: No. 12
