Podcast: B10 and PAC-12 Postpone, and the Debut of CFB Elo Ratings

Big Ten and Pac-12 Postpone 2020 CFB, Elo Ratings, and Notre Dame to the ACC

The Staturdays podcast is back on an eventful day for college football as the B10 and PAC-12 cancel their fall sports seasons. We did our first ever live podcast show on Facebook Live, so if you’re interested in watching us there, the replay is now available here. We will be doing our episodes live on Tuesday’s at 8 p.m. before the podcast is available to download, so stop by on Tuesday, 8/25, for our next episode!

This week we started off talking about the conference cancellations (1:35) before moving on to discuss the probability of seeing football played in each of the three remaining Power-5 conferences (7:00). Next we talk about Trevor Lawrence’s tweets (17:00) and then finally move on to some better Staturdays news. We talk about the debut of our Elo ratings system for game prediction and team strength (26:58) and finish with a discussion about Drew’s latest article on Notre Dame’s playoff chances now that they are in the ACC (36:45).
