ESPN’s FPI projections say Mizzou will be a 7-win team in 2018

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

ESPN’s preseason Football Power Index projections are out. They use similar criteria to my S&P+ projections, and a lot of the results are pretty similar between the two.

SEC S&P+ and FPI projections

Team S&P+ rk FPI rk FPI proj wins
Team S&P+ rk FPI rk FPI proj wins
Alabama 2 2 10.8
Auburn 5 7 9.1
Georgia 6 3 10.9
Mississippi State 14 16 8.4
LSU 16 26 6.2
Texas A&M 24 19 7.4
Ole Miss 25 45 6.3
Missouri 30 29 7.3
Florida 32 21 8.1
South Carolina 35 28 7.2
Arkansas 52 54 5.9
Kentucky 64 56 5.4
Vanderbilt 75 76 3.9
Tennessee 79 53 5.8

The big differences between the two ratings are for Tennessee (26 spots higher in FPI) and Florida (11 spots higher in FPI), which suggests that their projections lean more heavily on recruiting rankings than mine. Then again, S&P+ likes LSU (by 10 spots) and Ole Miss (by 20) more, so ... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Either way, Mizzou’s a projected top-30 team with a chance at a pretty fun season.
