Mr. McGarity, let's play some night games

Year2 uses magic and statistics to show that upsets don't happen at night in SEC stadiums: 
In those late contests, there were only three upsets in 80 total mismatches for an upset rate of 3.75%. Upsets basically don't happen in SEC games after dark. The three upsets were Vandy over Ole Miss in 2008, Kentucky over South Carolina in 2010, and Auburn over Florida in 2011. The last of the three isn't that titanic of an upset, and only the middle one, a classic let down game after the Gamecocks' upset of Alabama, involved a real conference contender.
The only saving grace is the early games toss ups are overwhelmingly wins for the home team. Let's schedule some night games.
