The Temple offense was partially redeemed by avoiding costly turnovers (they turned the ball over more than most but those turnovers were relatively painless), making field goals and generally performing well in the red zone. Still, this was not an incredible effective offense.
Things were worse on the other side of the ball. Opponents completed just under 70% of their passes and averaged almost 15 yards per completion. That's a deadly combination. That followed that up by allowed 200 rushing yards per game. Temple was 8th nationally in fumbles recovered per play but 8th worst in interceptions per pass, and on the whole under performed at forcing turnovers, erasing their advantage from avoiding turnovers on offense.
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 of the stats used in the table below.xxxx
