Fans and the media can argue that college football hasn’t changed one bit since the end of last season (since Alabama & Clemson remain the top two teams in the land).
Still the numbers to this point are interesting.
7, 3 & 1
Florida State. The Seminoles total points scored, weeks since their last game, and the total number of games they have played. FSU has not seen the field since moments after star QB Deondre Francois went down with that brutal injury against Alabama.
There are five unbeaten teams left in the SEC. Three of those are named Mississippi State, Kentucky and Vanderbilt.
The combined records of Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, Toledo and San Diego State.
The combined records of BYU, Texas, Baylor, UNC and Nebraska.
Total passing yards for Army in three games. The Black Nights are 4 for 18 through the air.
56 – 9.8
Scoring offense (min 3 games)
Most – Oregon 168 in three games / 56.0 PPG
Least – BYU 39 in four games / 9.8 PPG
Total offensive yards by defending Heisman winner Lamar Jackson (QB Louisville) in three games. He alone is averaging 463.7 yards per game. That’s more than 88 other teams are averaging.
Average yards per game allowed by Vanderbilt; that’s No. 1 in nation. Alabama is next for the Commodores. Also 7: Number of sacks by Vandy LB Charles Wright (tied for first in nation).
Current QB ranking of Josh Allen (Wyoming) considered preseason as a possible No. 1 pick in the next NFL draft. Allen has two TDs and three interceptions thus far.
Final score of the most lopsided game so far (and will probably win for the year) St. Johns (MN) over St. Scholastica.
