    As we approach mid season, it's time to take a look at the passing, rushing, and receiving leaders on each team. Sorry defense junkies, the stats are too spread out to get any good trends on an individual player basis. We'll look at those more when we compile the team stats on a future date.

    So here they are, green is top performer, red is lowest. I only took the leader in yards on each team at each position so the teams that spread the ball around or had injuries get the short straw here. I mention some highlights in relation to this below.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ArUW6Y5xNWCtdGctNS1rU0dhdlhKc1pwQkZaRi1hV2c

    Passing:

    USC's Matt Barkley has led the #2 passing offense so far this season with big numbers and an excellent touchdown to interception ratio. Now that he has gone down for the season, can his backup continue this success?

    The Arkansas passing game has been high risk / high reward so far this season, with the most touchdowns and interceptions, and near the top in yards per completion.

    It's hard to believe that A&M, led by a "running coach" is #1 in attempts. Not to say that coach Evans is going all crazy and away from his conservative style though as they have the lowest yards per completion, indicative of their bias towards short passes.

    Wisconsin has an amazing TD to INT ratio, one interception this far into the season is something to be commended.

    South Carolina's stats are misleading since their starter went down in game 3. If you add up both of their QB, who have similar stats, they move up to #8 in yardage and Michgan falls to last on the list.


    Rushing:

    As expected, Lattimore is the workhorse of the league.

    Denard Robinson is a big play machine, leading his team with the 2nd least attempts on this list with an amazing 13 TD.

    Oregon's stats are misleading here too, their #2 HB is a near clone of their top guy on this list. Talk about balance...

    Receiving:

    Keenan Allen is the best of the go to receivers so far this season. He has been as good as advertised.

    In addition to two of the leaders on this list, both USC and Arkansas have multiple receivers with big numbers. They have great passing games AND spread the ball around nicely.

    Ryan Swope is the workhorse on this list, leading by a considerably margin for most catches, although most of those are short passes as seen in the yards per completion number. Think small white guy who runs the routes no one else wants to like Wes Welker.

    One TE on the list, and of course it's Stoneburner. Dude is a WR who is called a TE. One HB on the list as well, proving that if you like your MVP to be truly the most valuable for his team, Lattimore has to be at the top of your list since he leads his team in rushing AND receivng.
