Transitive relationships

Today, I'd like to use a mathematical analogy to predict GT's upcoming W over the hushpuppies. The relationship revolves around each game being a completely objective datum point. Two teams playing eachother results in one being a greater numerical value than the other (victor/loser).

For example, GT beat Miami. Therefore, GT > UM. Now, the hard part is finding a transitive relationship between GT and ugag. A seven-degrees of Kevin Bacon type relationship.

GT defeated MSU, MSU defeated Vandy, Vandy defeated Ole Miss, Ole Miss defeated UF, UF defeated ugag. Hence, GT > msu > vandy > ole miss > UF > ugag. Therefore, GT >>> ugag via a nice football transitive relationship. If you can come up with an easier one, I'm all ears.
