Ranking Scoring Offenses and Defenses Better – SEC Edition

Below are the expected points scored and given up percentages for SEC teams through 11/6/13. The offensive numbers represent the percentage of points scored on average compared to the average number of points a team’s opponents have given up. The defensive numbers represent the percentage of points given up compared to the average number of points scored by a team’s opponent. It’s an attempt to look not just at the number of points a team averages on offense and defense, but to also take into account the quality of the opponent those points were scored against or given up to.

The combined difference combines both percentages for an overall team scoring statistic.
