Past Annual Feature Picks.

Note: Each week during the college football season, Mike Mitchell assesses the computer's picks and chooses highlights the games which he believes the computer has the best chance of picking correctly. He divides the picks into two categories, "Easy Pickins" and "Hold Your Horses". He also includes a third category of "Upsets", which are games that the computer has picked a different outright winner than the oddsmakers (every computer upset pick is included).

Here are annual results of those picks in each category from 2005-present, and cumulative W-L totals from 2002-present.

Go to Feature Picks for more details and the picks themselves.
