Margin Of Victory

An example of how USC benefits from the lack of the margin of victory component is found in the latest Sagarin ratings, which are used for the BCS ratings. USC is No. 1 in the rankings without MOV, but 12th in the MOV rankings. Not only is Cal third in those rankings, but Sagarin’s calculations suggest that, if the game was scheduled for next week, the Bears would be a 3-5 point favorite over the Trojans.
