There is another season inside the college football season. Whenever two California-based teams play each other it counts toward the Mythical California Cup. National and conference titles may be out of reach but there’s always a race down to the wire for the MCC. And at the end some California team wins a beautiful (mythical) trophy.

Data sourced from CollegeFootballData.com and their API.

Check out the full rules and the historical results. All the code is available in our github.

Some particularly interesting stories that go beyond data and code get filed with the tag “one great game.” Our data-heavy series on the weird explosion and contraction in Cal State football will hopefully be expanded. We also have a sideline in explaining the real legacy of David Stern.
