Here’s how ESPN’s FPI is determined:

The Football Power Index (FPI) is 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. FPI represents how many points above or below average a team is. Projected results are based on 10,000 simulations of the rest of the season using FPI, results to date, and the remaining schedule. Ratings and projections update daily.

We’ve taken the liberty of rounding up the data for each Big Ten program into this table. Do you agree with their results?
