The computers liked De La Salle, and the Spartans have won the Massey Virtual National Championship by beating South Panola-Batesville (Miss.) in the championship. The computer churned out a 24-10 final score.

OLD POST

Here’s one for fans of computer ratings when it comes to high school football. The Massey Virtual National Championship, a 64-team bracket that pits teams against each other in a virtual national playoff using the Massey algorithm (the same one used by the BCS) created by Ken Massey, has reached the finals and De La Salle, the California Open Division champ, has made the championship game.

The Spartans will face South Panola-Batesville (Miss.) when the computer picks a virtual national champion tomorrow morning (I think it’s tomorrow morning, anyway). South Panola beat Don Bosco Prep-Ramsey (NJ) in its semi, while De La Salle beat St. Edward-Lakewood (Ohio).

You can visit the home page for the competition here. You can get to the brackets from there, and check out the previous rounds.

    The computers aren’t the only ones who like De La. State and National polls had them ranked from 1 to 3 in National rankings, plus all state polls had them # 1. Great job Spartans! :)
