Rutgers also beat New Mexico, a 9-4 squad that was ranked #76 on Sagarin. I see a number of teams ranked below Princeton on that list that would beat them: Connecticut, Montana, UNLV, Grambling State, Rice, UTEP etc.

I guess you know something Sagarin doesn't then.

Of course, just because Sagarin says that Team A will beat Team B does not mean that it will happen. But, overall, Sagarin's track record is excellent. Let's put it this way: His error distribution is normally shaped around his predicted outcome. That's all you can really ask of a statistician.

Princeton 2016 may not have beaten Rutgers 2016 at New Brunswick. But, because of Sagarin's calculations, I feel very confident in saying that it would have been a competitive game.

And btw, was the Howard coach fired after losing this game? I think his reputation is intact. Surace's reputation is damaged more by declining this game than by getting defeated on the field, regardless of the score.
