To calculate conference projections, I subtracted each team’s conference strength of schedule (ConfSOS) from its preseason power rating (Power). This metric produces an average expectation of point differential (AvgExp) for each conference game for the respective team. Thus, in some cases, teams predicted to be stronger will slip below those rated lower because of a tougher schedule.
Linked is the Stassen Preseason Poll, which combines other conference projections to rank teams. In some cases, like Texas A&M and Florida State, my predictions disagree by several spots in the rankings.
Here are my projections for all eleven conferences.
