With the 2019 college football season less than two months away let’s take an early look at ESPN’s CFB Power Index…
The Football Power Index (FPI) is a measure of team strength that is meant to be the best predictor of a team’s performance going forward for the rest of the season. FPI represents how many points above or below average a team is. Projected results are based on 10,000 simulations of the rest of the season using FPI, results to date, and the remaining schedule. Ratings and projections update daily.
Of the 130 FBS teams Louisville is ranked 66th in the FPI.
Eastern Kentucky, Western Kentucky and Boston College are the only three opponents that the formula gives Louisville a greater chance of winning than losing.
