STOP RATE - HOW THE PAC-12 RANKS MIDWAY THROUGH 2021

Recommended Posts

STOP RATE = percentage of drives that end in punts, turnovers and turnovers on downs.

 

Is anyone surprised that the #1 team in SR today is Georgia? [BTW, UGA just flipped SC's 5* DL 'commit' who is from Georgia]

 

But having a great SR does not equate to overall success on the field. Clemson is #5, Bama is #38. And like many stats in CFB, SR does not account for the quality of the opposition's offense. Playing D vs Ole Miss is far different than playing D vs Vandy or Stony Brook.

 

Pac-12 rankings: CU 34/ Utah 35/ Oregon 36/ ASU 50/ UW 53/ USC 61/ WSU 76/ OR ST 78/ AZ 79/ Stanford 85/ CAL 91/ UCLA 98.

 

To date the Oregon O underperformed against 85 Stanford and 91 CAL. Teams that are not too good at stopping any team other than the Ducks. 

 

UCLA's SR is the worst in the conference. What will happen on Saturday when a suspect force encounters a movable object?

 

Another SR caveat. A number of good CFBs bend but don't break. They keep teams out of the end zone or hold teams to FG attempts in the red zone.

 

After all, the Ducks D gave up a whole lot of yardage to the Ohio State O. And Clemson's O this season has rendered its #5 SR ranking irrelevant.

 Love this! And yeah, Oregon's D didn't stop Ohio States O,  save for the TO"s, that one, "Could have gone either way". Clemson is a great case, their offense is Sllllloooowww. Dabo is sticking with Uiagalelei,.
