Statistical Review: Boston College #104

Boston College has the proud distinction of being one of 5 FBS teams in 2012 that scored fewer than 20 points per game but also allowed fewer than 30. One FBS win, scoring fewer than 20 points per game and losing by less than 10 points per game is the college football fans nightmare scenario; the sports equivalent of a slow motion exsanguination. BC mimicked that slow blood loss with their style of play. Defensively, BC was solid against the run and not terrible against the pass, but no team in college football was less successful at getting in opponents' backfields. Offensively, they lacked a running game (cough, cough, Montel Harris), Rettig was not terrible, but they averaged less than 3 points per red zone possession; since you're starting with a 37 yard field goal at worse, this is remarkably bad. In other words, they matched their bend but don't break defense with a bend but don't score offense. Painful.

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.
