Duo Selected as Finalist for NFL's Inaugural Big Data Bowl
This year's NFL playoffs were marred by what some have called the worst missed call in history. A controversial pass interference no-call likely cost the New Orleans Saints a spot in the Super Bowl.
Now a pair of Carnegie Mellon University first-year students has been selected to present a pass interference rule change proposal to league officials as part of the NFL's inaugural Big Data Bowl competition. Brendon Gu and Peter Wu will travel to Indianapolis this week for the NFL Scouting Combine, where they will outline their suggestion and the analytics that shaped it.
