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.

When I’m saying we’re the best no win team in the nation, that’s not a joke, and that’s not because the Pac 12 hasn’t started playing yet. There’s a reason why we’re still top ten in Bill Connelly’s SP+ rankings.
