Other than SOS, the other thing working against LU to some extent is that the laxpower model – like Sagarin, Pomeroy, etc – incorporates score differential. A 10-goal home loss to Villanova and a 1-goal home win over Army haven’t helped. Normally a 1-goal win over UNC would be a big deal in the rankings, but UNC has struggled this year and is only ranked #14 themselves, so LU did not get a huge boost from that win. In fact, due to the margin of victories, the wins over Penn, PSU, and Yale actually were actually more helpful – since those teams at the moment are only 1-3 goals worse than UNC and LU beat all of them by a good margin.
