Champ week's Best Def. Performances

The EP3, or effective points per possession, measures 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.

The week's best defensive performance came from TCU in a losing effort. I guess that's what you get for trying to play defense in the Big 12. You lose. Except Kansas State won, so maybe the key is to play Texas and not Oklahoma if you want to win. Oregon State put up very impressive EP3s on offense and defense, even considering the opponent. And Florida State and Georgia Tech just demonstrated again how inferior the ACC is relative to the SEC.
