NCAA Statistical Rankings After Two Weeks

September 14, 2009
It’s a bit early for these rankings to mean much, but here’s where the Pack ranks nationally in several key categories after two games, courtesy NCAAsports.com:

Category National
Rank
Actual
Rushing Offense 78 125.00
Passing Offense 81 183.50
Total Offense 94 308.50
Scoring Offense 38 34.00
Rushing Defense 16 54.50
Pass Efficiency Defense 14 87.33
Total Defense 4 146.00
Scoring Defense 9 7.00
Net Punting 94 32.44
Punt Returns 9 23.20
Kickoff Returns 68 20.75
Turnover Margin 15 1.50
Pass Defense 7 91.50
Passing Efficiency 44 144.53
Sacks 13 3.50
Tackles For Loss 16 8.50
Sacks Allowed T-104 3.50

Notes:

  • How bad was State’s offensive performance in the opening game against South Carolina? So bad that dropping 65 on the Racers of Murray State barely moved State into the top third of scoring offense. Moreso, the 484 total yards of offense Saturday night was only good enough to lift State into the top 100 in total offense. Yikes.
  • Conversely, South Carolina’s poor offensive showing coupled with the total domination of the Racers put State in some prematurely lofty company defensively. State’s in the top-16 of nearly every defensive category, including 4th in total defense, 16th in rushing defense and 7th in pass defense.

We should see these numbers come back to the norm over the next two games, but interesting to see State with poor offensive numbers and strong defensive numbers — like a Bizarro State thus far.
