Coming up with lots of wins always matters, but pulling off the massive victory over the top team in the big game can define a season.

In the CFN Five-Year Program Analysis, an Elite Win is a victory over an FBS team that finished with two losses or fewer, or on the road or in a bowl game against a team that lost three games. An extra 0.5 is added on to the Elite Win score when a team comes up with a road victory over a team that finished with two losses or fewer.

As you’ll notice, it’s really, really hard to get a win over a great team – that’s why they’re Elite Wins.
