College football yards per play statistics

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 last week’s games. The rushing numbers are below the passing numbers.

These numbers are not adjusted for strength of schedule. Members of The Power Rank have access to the adjusted numbers. To learn more, click here.
