    To compare to where things were last year:

    In 2016-2017 the B1G won 76% of it's OOC games against, on average as a whole, a Non Conf SOS of 123.

    In 2017 so far the B1G has won 70% of it's OOC games against, on average as a whole, a Non Conf SOS projection of 192.

    To sum up, the B1G is playing by far a much easier schedule this year, and is winning 6% less of it's games. Obviously most of the difficult portions of the OOC schedules have come and gone, so that winning % will most likely go up, but even still, I don't expect the B1G to get to the 76% number, and that's with the conference having played a significantly easier schedule, as a whole.

    The B1G projects to have played, as a conference, the 24th best OOC SOS. There are 32 conferences.

    Would Arkansas qualify as another one?

    Yes, Razorbacks currently are #35. If Gophers can get that one, that would be at minimum 2 "Quadrant 1 Top 75 Road Wins". Both Arkansas and Providence could drop some as the season progresses, but I can't envision them not finishing in the top 75.

    Keep in mind, however, I'm using KenPom rankings as the metric. ... no one knows for sure what the committee's exact metric looks like. But KenPom (like RPI & Sagarain) is a metric they consider, I know.
