College football yards per play statistics

These are still year end numbers from 2015. Working on it…

In college football statistics, sacks count as negative rushing yards even though they are pass plays. These rankings make the proper adjustment of sacks as pass plays in calculating yards per play for passing and rushing.

These statistics are up to date through yesterday’s games. The rushing numbers are below the passing numbers.

Note these numbers are not adjusted for strength of schedule. Adjusted numbers are available to members.
