Phil Steele has an interesting stat up today.
TAMU is a bit of an eye-opener there. If you go to the linked piece, you’ll find that the Aggies are pretty balanced in that regard, 19th offensively and 12th defensively. (By comparison, Georgia is 14th and 26th, respectively.) Jimbo looks like he can still coach a little.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering about the methodology, Steele removes garbage yards that may occur during overtime and/or blowout wins/losses.
Anyways, Central Florida? Glad you asked. Steele has UCF ranked 29th. The breakdown is 8th on offense and 91st on defense, where it’s actually 20 yards worse than opponents’ average. So much for that whole “just like Oklahoma” argument. (FYI, Oklahoma isn’t great defensively, but at least it’s holding opponents below their season average.)
