Red Zone Points

RZ = Points per possession in the red zone | PPP = Points per possession | Gap = RZ-PPP

 - Oregon leads the nation in points per trip in the red zone and is almost a half point better than everyone else nationally with 5.8
- The Ducks are followed by Louisiana-Monroe, Louisiana-Lafayette and Ohio State.
- Massachusetts, Boston College and Tulane are at the bottom of the list.
- Notre Dame is less than a point better when inside the 20 than in possessions that start anywhere on the field; Baylor and Kansas State are 4th and 5th in the smallest gap between RZ and PPP, largely because they score a lot of points per possession in general.
- Alabama, Notre Dame and Florida are 1, 2, and 4 nationally in fewest points per possession. Those three are joined by BYU and Utah State in the top 5.
- Notre Dame allows only 1.7 points per possession in the red zone. Only 15 other teams allow less than twice that. Alabama is not one of those 15 teams.
- Oregon leads the nation with 2.5 more points scored in the red zone than they allow. They are followed by Utah State and Georgia.
