The CSD Prime Computer Model Preseason Rankings, From Alabama To UTEP

A good general rule to go by when projecting a game between two teams is to add three points to the home team’s rating and then take the difference between the two. The CSD Prime computer model starts the year very conservative in terms of projected spreads but gets more aggressive as more data comes in.
