Note:

All of the above rankings are taken directly from the NCAA except for strength of schedule, which is not as readily available this year and so I’ve removed it for the time being from these statistics.

The Redzone TD% and Redzone TD% Defense are calculated by me and not ranked by the NCAA. Determining who has the advantage in these categories is strictly my arbitrary judgment.

Quick thoughts:

Uh.....that’s a lot of chipmunks.

What say you all?
