A Notion About Remaining Games

Post by USU78 » September 28th, 2021, 11:06 am

I have a notion that looking at recent series' histories might be interesting, and might give us some insights about what to expect for the remaining 2/3 of the schedule.

yBu: Last 3 -- 2-1; Last 5 -- 2-3; Last 10 -- 4-6

This series has been about as close as anything can be and not be exactly even. Most recent history favors the Ags, while going back a little bit favors yBu slightly. Overall, yBu gained a significant lead in the 89 game series and it stands at 37-49-3.

@Vegas: Last 3 -- 3-0; Last 5 -- 5-0; Last 10 -- 8-2

USU simply dominates. Only when USU is lousy does Vegas even compete.

CSU: Last 3 -- 2-1; Last 5 -- 3-2; Last 10 -- 5-5

USU and CSU series favors USU, by just a hair, but its dead even going back 10 seasons.

Hawai'i: Last 3 -- 3-0; Last 5 -- 5-0; Last 10 -- 6-4

Strongly favors USU, especially recently. USU still favored slightly going back 10 games.

@NewMags: Last 3 -- 2-1; Last 5 -- 4-1; Last 10 -- 7-3

USU is always the favorite in this series, with only occasional bumps in the road. Over the 39 game history, only twice have the NewMags won in a game that meant something: two bowl games that were as tight as bowl games can be and featured the 2 best teams Las Cruces produced between 1960 and 2017.

@San Jose: Last 3 -- 3-0; Last 5 -- 5-0; Last 10 -- 8-2

USU owns the recent series, though the Spartans have a 2-game lead overall in this 39 game series.

Wyoming: Last 3 -- 2-1; Last 5 -- 3-2; Last 10 -- 6-4

USU is a favorite at all levels, both recent and overall: USU leads the 70 game series 40-26-4.

@New Mexico: Last 3 -- 3-0; Last 5 -- 4-1; Last 10 -- 7-3

USU is the favorite recently here as well, and has a slight lead in the overall 27 game series, 14-13.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
