Pro-Football-Reference has a stat called Adjusted Net Yards Per Attempt, a statistic that has good correlation with winning football games when above the average (note that this post doesn’t include defenses that held teams below average). The formula is: (Pass Yards + 20*(TD) – 45*(INT) – Sack Yards) / (Attempts + Sacks). Here are how the college football teams did with this statistic in the 2008 season. A number over 7.0 is very good while a number over 8.0 is amazing. It’s no surprise that several teams in the National Championship race (Oklahoma, Florida, Texas, Georgia, Texas Tech, USC) all did really well.

1: Oklahoma: 10.29
