I'm working on my IA topic for math studies and I've come up with the correlation of the first period leads in college football games and the final score. Does that sound like a good one? I'm not sure about it

I just don't see how a huge data table would be made out of it... remember you need a lot of numerical data, a good way to think of whether it would work would be whether you could plot a scatter graph for it, as that would show you had two variables with a wide range of numerical datas.

You clearly have an interest in making your IA about sports, and another example could be Basketball. I don't play basketball or american football, but to me a suggestion would be something like whether there is a correlation in basketball between height and number of baskets scored - maybe through a season, or something. You would be able to refine it. Remember you need to be able to collect a lot of valid data - be it through survey of your peers or internet stats.
