How Auburn Won Every 2018-19 Bowl Game


With so much drama in the CFB, it’s kinda hard being… ok I couldn’t think of anything else. But in just 4 short years, we’re already mad about 4 teams in the playoffs because it is somewhat obvious that it’s tough to pick the 3rd and 4th best teams in years like this year. It’s all subjective. It’s hard to just guess. So why guess?

There are too many teams to really know who is the best, but the best possible way to figure it out is to just look at who beat who. So again, with the help of My Team is Better Than Your Team, I have crunched the numbers to see who was best on the field.

Now I wasn’t expecting this, and I mean it this time, but it turns out that Auburn has won this whole thing… AGAIN. Yeah, THREE years in a row. Only one bowl took more than 4 levels of transitivity, and most just took 2. That’s hard to argue with, given all the results right there in front of us. No more old people guessing. This is it. Your 2018-19 Transitive National Champions and Winners of All Bowls: the Auburn Tigers. Proof.
