Do different home fields have different advantages?

Do different home fields have different advantages?

Are all home field advantages equal? If so, this should probably be adjusted. I'd argue a school like Wake Forest has a much smaller home field advantage than someone like OSU, LSU, etc.

As a programmer, I'll admit this could potentially be a bit challenge to program, as it is highly subjective. But not all home field advantages are equal.

Developer certainly can officially respond but there isn't any kind of team field that I am aware of that indicates specifically a team's strength of playing at home. However, I assume the team's prestige play's a role in this which likely increases their odds at winning at home. Although likely not perfect if that is the case since I suspect there may be some cases (albeit probably low/rare) where higher prestige teams may not always be more dominant at home or teams like Penn State where they usually play pretty strong at home even though in a given year they might not be a great/high prestige team...and in those cases a separate rating and/or use of historical win/loss (including size of victories) at home would be needed.

No, there are not varying degrees of home field advantage in the game currently.
