ESPN has released its first “Football Power Index” rankings of 2020 and USC is No. 13, the highest-rated Pac-12 team.
Oregon is right behind the Trojans at No. 14. The FPI ratings are “a measure of team strength that is meant to be the best predictor of a team’s performance going forward for the rest of the season.”
Does anyone these predictions? Last year, ESPN projected USC with 6.7 wins and 5.5 losses and a 7 percent chance of winning the Pac-12.
