Updated FPI projects a second Notre Dame loss

·2 min read

ESPN’s Football Power Index is something I have a love-hate relationship with. I love more information and finding out which teams may be being over or undervalued in terms of their rankings, but also find some of their rankings to be laughable in just how much it appears they don’t value actual game outcomes.

With that all said, I still track it each week because I truly do find it to be interesting and at least partly informative.

FPI has been updated after college football’s seventh week of 2021 and the system that called for Notre Dame to be favored in all remaining games the last time we checked in now has the Irish losing one more time.

Find out the chances FPI gives Notre Dame in their remaining six games below:
