The 2021 Football Analytics Challenge to raise money for The Boys & Girls Clubs of America (donate here) will take place Wednesday, August 4 at 8 pm ET, live on YouTube. The updated link can be found here
The competition will features entrants in the Football Track and feature a best-of from the Gambling Track.
The question for the football track asked entrants to identify the most popular route concepts in the NFL in 2020, as well as ascertain which concepts perform the best versus the different coverage types.
The finalists will be Joe Andruzzi, Joseph Chernak, and the team of Keegan Abdoo, Dr. Bud Davis, Joey Ferraiola, and Mark Schofield.
The gambling track question considered how much of an effect quarterbacks and wide receivers should have on point spreads. Henry Gise will present his entry to our judges.
Judges will include former longtime coach Rick Neuheisel and ex-NFL player Najee Goode, as well as prominent members of the football analytics community, such as Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders and Seth Walder of ESPN.
