Two tabs on the above spreadsheet. NOTABLES This year defense does NOT win championships. The two teams national championship, South Carolina and Wisconsin had the two worst defenses from a yardage standpoint and at or near the bottom in points allowed. Wisconsin was interesting all the way around. Also finishing with the most points per game but the least first downs. Northwestern had the opposite formula, to someone lesser success.They had the most yards, but the least points and the best defense from a total yards standpoint. Michigan had some amazing stats:least passing yards, more than balanced by only 6 sacks allowed, only 22 turnovers allowed.On defense: less than 1000 rushing yards allowed and less than 200 points allowed.They also only allowed opponents to even enter the red zone 27 times, allowing less than 10 TD and a miserly 63% opponent red zone conversion percentage…wow.Too bad all this didn’t translate into more wins. Florida rarely got into the red zone offensively, but if they did, they were almost guaranteed to score, in fact, only two times ALL SEASON did they not get at least some points in the red zone. If Oregon entered the red zone, they were going for broke and were scoring a TD or nothing at all. On the other side of the coin, Northwestern was pretty awful in the RZ, only scoring a little more than every 3 out of 4 times. Speaking of Oregon, they only lost 1 fumble the entire season, and South Carolina didn’t recover one single fumble on defense all season. Ohio State killed themselves with turnovers…as usual. And finally, if you made it into the red zone against Wisconsin or Arkansas…you could count on scoring.
