Week 12's Best Offensive Performances

The EP3, or effective points per possession, measure the average number of "effective" points earned each drive during a game. Effective points consider field position as well as actual points. The EP3+ is the team's average performance over the course of the season adjusted for the opposition. The EP3+D is the defensive score while the EP3+O is for the offense. The Perf-O begins with the single-game EP3 and adjusts for the opponent's EP3+D. The Perf-D begins with the opponent's EP3 and adjusts it for the opponent's EP3+O.

Scoring 42 points on Duke might not seem that impressive, but doing it on 8 full possessions is. Georgia Tech, though, was outshone this week by Baylor, who scored 52 points on 13 possessions, and not against Duke but against the #1 team in the country. Texas A&M finished scoring two plays into the second half, but already had 47 points. Oregon was still better than 100 other teams nationally on offense despite scoring only 14 points and losing.
