Sports rankings are a widely debated topic among sports fanatics and analysts. Many techniques for systematically generating sports rankings have been explored, ranging from simple win-loss systems to various algorithms. In this report, we discuss the application of graph theory to sports rankings. Using this approach, we were able to outperform existing sports rankings with our new four algorithms. We also reverse-engineered existing rankings to understand the factors that influence them.
