Statistical Review: Florida Atlantic #110

If Carl Pelini is desperate to add a line on his resume after his 3-9 start at Florida Atlantic, I've got it for him. For whatever reason, the Owls were freakishly good at defending 3rd downs. That is not to say they were really good at defending 3rd down plays, only that they were freakishly good relative to how generally bad they were in every other aspect of the game. In all, teams converted 58 of 158 attempts against Florida Atlantic (36.7%), good enough for 40th nationally and within one percentage point of 28th. That is, admittedly, pretty awkward for a resume, but I did say only if he was desperate.

The Statistical Review breaks down teams along a number of performance categories, everything from red zone scoring to field goal percentage, and compares that performance against the rest of the FBS. All 124 teams will be reviewed from 124 to 1 by the hybrid rankings. You can find short descriptions in the table below.
