Some interesting facts about total offense, total defense and rankings

1. Clemson and Washington State are the only two teams that have both total offense and total defense currently ranked in the top 15 in the nation. (Clemson #12 on offense & #3 on defense, Washington State #15 on offense & #12 on defense.)

2. Among the top 15 in total defense, Clemson, currently #3 in the nation, is the only team that has played an offense currently ranked in the top 15. (Louisville #8)

3. Among the top 15 in total offense, Clemson, currently #12 in the nation, is the only team that has played a defense currently ranked in the top 15. (Auburn #4)

4. Virginia Tech offense is currently #14, but they have played two non-FBS opponents (Delaware & Old Dominions). And even with those opponents, Virginia Tech defense is currently at #28. (To their credit, they played West Virginia, who is currently #2 on total offense.)

5. Clemson and Georgia are the only two AP-ranked teams that have beaten two other teams currently ranked in the AP Poll. (Clemson beat #13 Auburn & #17 Louisville, Georgia beat #22 Notre Dame & #24 Mississippi State.) Mississippi State is another team that has played two currently ranked other teams but it lost to Georgia.)

Also Clemson's strength of schedule is currently #8 and VaTech #67, USCjr comes in at #47 and we know they've played a junk schedule.


POTD!***

Good post. Appreciate the info. I'd be curious to see if the playoff selection committee looks at similar off/def rankings and makeup of those rankings.


I'm not real sure

4-0 is the best stat.
