Definition of YUSAG Coefficient

The YUSAG coefficient is the number of points a given team would be expected to beat the average team on a neutral field. Taking the difference between two teams coefficients gives you how much team A would be expected to beat team B by at a neutral site. For more on the the math behind this model, click here.
