Statistical Review: Texas State #103

For Texas State's inaugural FBS campaign there is only one question that matters: When a team finish 102nd in yards per game but 67th in points can they repeat it? The follow up is this: How does a team score almost 30 points per game while averaging 4.7 plays/possession? Texas State was slightly above average in the number of explosive plays (25+ yards) on offense (about 1 in 20), a stat that is predictive (a team that scores well one season is more likely to score well the next season), and a healthy +32 on turnovers, a stat that is less predictive. In all, unless the defense stops being terrible, in 2013 we should expect an average point margin of -5 to grow to -10 as the scoring dips.

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.
