Welcome to the ESPN NFL Survival Pool Optimization (ENSPO) Project website!
As part of George Mason University’s System Engineering and Operations Research (SEOR) graduate program, students may pursue a Master of Science in Systems Engineering or Master of Science in Operations Research. To satisfy degree requirements, students have the option to undertake SYST/OR 699, a course serving as a synthesis activity where students complete an applied and realistic project relevant to Systems Engineering and Operations Research.
This website documents the work of SYST/OR 699 students Audrey Barry, Lauren Moore, Adam Patterson, and Dominique Strothers for the Fall 2016 Semester at George Mason University. The project completed by the students was sponsored by Entertainment and Sports Programming Network (ESPN) Senior Analyst Brian Burke, and was focused on National Football League (NFL) Survivor Pool contests.
