College Basketball: And the Last Undefeated Team Will Be...

We're down to nine undefeated teams entering winter break for universities. Will any of these programs threaten the 1976 Indiana Hoosiers and go undefeated?

Perhaps. There is always that chance. But the big names (Duke, UNC, Kentucky, Ohio State) have all fallen this season.

So, who will be the last undefeated team in the nation? Allow this slideshow to give you the statistical analysis you need to come up with the answer.

Statistics are based off of Ken Pomeroy's power rankings. Pomeroy projects the spreads of every game and his projections are usually within a point or two. With the spreads come the percent chance a team will win a given game. We can use those percentages to determine the likelihood a team will win a series of games.

Following that, we will be able to come up with the probability of a team running the table, and which team will be able to last the longest without a loss.

It may sound confusing now, but delve in and well get a clearer understanding. This slideshow presents the teams in the reverse order of likelihood they will stay undefeated (the first team will lost next). Percentages shown reflect the likelihood the team wins a given game.
