Statistical Review: Wake Forest #86

Wake Forest's offensive ineptitude knew few bounds. A few stats to demonstrate: on average, teams cross midfield 56% of the time when they start the drive on the wrong side of the 50 yard line; Wake Forest crossed midfield 41% of the time. Teams reach the 30 yard line 41% of the time, but Wake Forest only did so 25% of the time. On a positive note, if Wake Forest did get that far they scored TDs 75% of the time. Besides playing tough in the red zone, Wake Forest avoided turnovers and penalties.

Wake Forest was almost uniformly bad on offense; they were uniformly bad on defense.

All-in-all, Wake Forest was a bad team that managed to squeeze out five wins by avoiding stupid mistakes and making the most of their opportunities.

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.
