Notes: Passing The stats here really underscore the differences in offensive styles between the teams. On one side of the spectrum are Ohio State, with their short passing game that essentially is the running game. Miller has the most completions and attempts, along with being tied with Alabama for the lowest yards per completion. On the other side is USC and Arkansas with their big play vertical passing games. The stats for Michigan and South Carolina are misleading as both teams had two guys who were nearly identical statwise due to either an intentional or unintentiional (injury) timeshare. Rushing Barry Sanders is definitely the workhorse of the league, pounding out yards on the ground for Stanford with an amazing 255 yards after contact. Highlighting a different but still prolific style is Sims of Alabama, leading the league in yardage and yards per carry at 8.2 vs 5 for Sanders. Sims also holds the lead in TD and an explosive 13 runs over 20 yards. No other explanation needed why this guy is the leader in the Heisman race. As noted above, Ohio State is really struggling in the running game with the loss of starter Rod Smith for most of the season. Backup Brionte Dunn is last in the league with just 4.6 yards per carry. Receiving Marquise Lee is really showing why he is the best WR in the league. He is 2nd in catches and leads in yardage. Top average goes to NW WR Prater who is coming on nicely and is definitely the big play guy for them with 10 TD and 117 yards per game. On the other end of the spectrum is South Carolina WR Ellington who has the least catches at 22, yards at 358, TD at 3, and YPG at just over 44. Either the Cocks spread it around or they are running on empty in the passing game. At Michigan, the short passing game is king as their leader Darboh is tied for most catches at 44 but only averages 11.5 yards per catch. The high risk, high reward award goes to Cal WR Harris who leads in catches but also in drops. He drops almost 10% of the passes thrown his way, but is second in the league in yardage as well.
