College Football Data 1.2.2

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

This release updates 2012 data through 10/27/2012.  Only the 2012 zip file has changed.  The zip files for 2005-2011 have not changed for this week, so they still have the version number of 1.2.0.

College Football Data 1.2.0

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

Three changes are included in this release.  First, the 2012 zip file contains data through 10/13/2012.  Second, the zip files for all seasons how contain play-level data files for rushing, passing, and receptions.

The third change is to remove the Nullified column from the play.csv file.  An example of the change is that a play that previously had a play type of RUSH with a Nullified column value of one now just has a play type of PENALTY.  The change is due to the lack of consistency in how nullified plays are scored by the official scorers, plus the complication of having to consider nullified plays when analyzing the data.

I fixed a bug that caused some data to be left out of the game-statistics.csv, team-game-statistics.csv, and player-game-statistics.csv files.

College Football Data 1.1.0

Sunday, October 7th, 2012

I’ve updated the college football data ZIP files to version 1.1.0.  The update includes the data for 2012 week 6 (through 10/06/2012), plus updates to previous 2012 games.  Each ZIP file contains a RELEASE.txt file that describes the contents of the CSV files contained in the ZIP.

I’ve also added CSV files for drives and plays to each ZIP file for 2005-2012.  More play-level data will be in future releases.
