College Football Game Database

 

Current Number of Games Included: 4,706

Below is a link to box score type information (+more) for 4,706 College Football games between FBS teams between the 2011 and 2017.

Please feel free to use the information.  All I ask is that the source is properly credited and you provide a link back to the data source (this page).

If you find any mistakes (variations of team names, missing information, wrong conferences) please let me know.  Realignment has made this project much tougher.

This database will be updated as time permits.

MINOR ERRORS HAVE BEEN CORRECTED. HIGHLY RECOMMEND DOWNLOADING ENTIRE DATA SET AGAIN FOR MOST ACCURATE INFO

Database was used in presentation to R users group in Dallas and will be part of the NESSIS at Harvard on September 23.  Read more here!

Notes About Data

  1. Point spread information is generally gathered from vegasinsider.com post game.
  2. Only games between 2 FBS teams are included.
  3. Time of Possession (TOP) may not always equal 60 minutes between two teams as some games are stopped early due to weather or other circumstances.
  4. Information is gathered from various sources and changes from time to time due to completeness and accuracy of information.
  5. Beginning with the 2016 data I have added the over/under total as the last column on the right.
