Prognosticating: UCF

By 11W Staff on September 5, 2012 at 9:00p

It's that time again – time for you to call the final score of Saturday's tilt with the UCF Knights.

The comment with the closest prediction for the final score will win a shirt from 11W Dry Goods. Like the lovely design featured on the right. Or something else. Your call.

So get in here, and get your prediction in and you could wind up like cbusbuckeye, who correctly nailed the 56-10 Miami score last week. He's receiving a #SWAGGERNAUT shirt just for being able to see the future.

The fine print:

  • Must be 18 years-old or older.
  • One entry/comment per person.
  • Duplicate predictions are ineligible — first come, first serve.
  • Deadline for entries is kickoff.

Good luck!

William's picture

Anything 2 points and up can.

Jason Priestas's picture

Interesting thought exercise. I wonder what the least likely score for a football game could be? Four points?

William's picture

Four has to be. I mean how often does a team score two safeties in a game?

Jason Priestas's picture

Yep. Basically two safeties and nothing else. No field goals, no touchdowns.

hodge's picture

Two points are also rewarded for returning an extra point or two point conversion to the opposing team's (the one executing the extra point/two point conversion attempt) endzone. 

Jason Priestas's picture

Good point. Still super-rare, though.

Baroclinicity's picture

I do believe Penn State lost a game with 4 points a few years ago.  Will try and find it.

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Baroclinicity's picture

October 23, 2004, Penn State lost to Iowa by a score of 6-4.

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

William's picture

True, but that wouldn't lead to a 4-0 score though, and I think that 6-2 is still a more likely score than 4-0. 

hodge's picture

Touché, but if we're on the 4-0 tangent, what's the statistical probability of 4-2? Both have gotta be damned near impossible. 

William's picture

4-2 might even be more unlikely, just because what game has 3 safeties, or what about 4-4?

hodge's picture

Just thought about that, but that would cause overtime, leading to possibilities of 7-4, 10-4, 10-7, 11-10, 11-7, 11-4, etc.  All those options have to be more possible than 4-2, I think. 

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Probability that any (generic) cfb game would end 4-2 = 1/12,000,000?
Probability that a PSU v. Iowa game would end 4-2 = 1/17.

It can happen quite easily with or without a safety.

William's picture

I'd agree, but unless UCF's RB plays, they'll be in a bit of trouble.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

If you go back and revise your pick to UCF, you'll greatly increase your chances of winning, as you might be the only one to pick UCF.

schooey's picture

Yeah, but does he really want to get banned for a T-shirt? You beat me to the numbers I wanted Fido, good luck. 

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Good luck to you, too. I went high but envisioned that the Buckeyes would pile it on during the 4Q. It's not that Urbz deliberately runs up the score. He just doesn't give a s--- about the other team's feelings, etc.
I wouldnt think someone would get banned for picking UCF, but it might be an awkward way to win a tee shirt (awesome as those tee shirts are).

I thought they used to be the golden knights & then changed it to the either black knights or just knights but I don't remember exactly. Could be wrong

They were the golden knights until 2007 then changed to the knights.

BTW William deserves a T-shirt too!

I don't because sadly I didn't enter that prediction in time. I had to go with another one.
