ESPN FPI predicts Georgia's remaining games
Taking a four-point lead into the halftime break, the Georgia Bulldogs were unable to tally any points in the second half and ending up falling, 41-24, to the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide on October 17 at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa.
Dropping from No. 3 to No. 4 in the Associated Press Poll with the loss, ESPN’s Football Power Index (FPI) released their updated projections for Kirby Smart’s Bulldogs on Sunday.
Before we look at each game on the remaining schedule, here is a quick reminder of how FPI is calculated.
“The Football Power Index (FPI) is a measure of team strength meant to be the best predictor of a team’s performance moving forward.
“FPI represents how many points above or below average a team is. Projected results are based on 20,000 simulations of the rest of the season using FPI, results to date, and the remaining schedule.
“Ratings and projections update daily. FPI data from seasons prior to 2019 may not be complete.”
Idle on Saturday, Georgia will next be in action against Mark Stoops’ Kentucky Wildcats in Lexington on Halloween.
- Oct. 31 at Kentucky: 83.1 percent chance to win
- Nov. 7 vs. No. 10 Florida (in Jacksonville): 65.7 percent
- Nov. 14 at Missouri: 88.7 percent
- Nov. 21 vs. Mississippi State: 94.2 percent
- Nov. 28 at South Carolina: 82.6 percent
- Dec. 5 vs. Vanderbilt: 98.7 percent
Even with the loss on their ledger, the FPI still gives the Bulldogs a 25.7 percent chance of winning the Southeastern Conference.
The October 31 battle with Kentucky, which will kick at 12 p.m. ET, will be broadcast on the SEC Network.
