2018 CFB Week 2 Game Magnitudes

baf0a816389744719c86e18128a3cdd3.0.jpg

Introduced last week, Game Magnitude is a metric that measures how important the game is to the teams playing. It combines win expectancy for the game with overall win expectancy for the season. I'm still not quite sure what to make of the ranges, but higher numbers mean more important games to the teams involved. Now for the viewing guide. It's not meant to be used as gospel (I for one find the UGA/SC game more compelling than other 3:30 games), but I think it'll be a decent tool to help plan your viewing this weekend.
