We won’t cover much of those specifics here. Smarter people than me at ESPN & SI can give you better insights on personnel, statistics, & schematic match-ups – all on-field factors that an otherwise-employed casual blogger doesn’t have the bandwidth to touch on.
Instead, we’ll focus on insights from our own proprietary information…data that exists here on Hierank.com, and nowhere else.
Hierank Data + Knowledgeable Fan
An Unbeatable Combo
What is Hierank’s proprietary data?
Hierank spits out a 0-100 Game Power performance rating for every team, each week.
This rating is based on the difficulty of the opponent faced, and the game’s final outcome & ‘closeness’ (in terms of both score spread & ratio).
This week-to-week information on performance for every single team can be broken down countless of useful ways, from looking at averages to trends, to outlying performances, and more.
Without further ado, let’s dive into these 5 factors, awarding our choice tomorrow night to whoever wins the majority:
- Overall Power
- Trending Power
- Power vs Common Opponents
- Power vs Strongest Five Opponents
- Power vs Last Five Opponents
1. Overall Power
76-127 Normal Power
81-110 Normal Power
2. Trending Power
3. Power vs Common Opponents
100 Power vs Texas A&M

4. Power vs Strongest Five Opponents

5. Power vs Last Five Opponents
104 Power vs Recent Opponents
It looks like it’s pretty clear; but anything can happen. We’ll see tomorrow night!
