Yesterday’s blog touched on the importance of offensive pass efficiency and its effect on wins and losses. The power of the pass efficiency statistic is increased by taking the difference between a team’s offensive and defensive pass efficiency. This is called the Pass Efficiency Differential (PED). The top 6 teams in this week’s AP Top 25 are all in the top 10 nationally in PED.
|AP Rank||Team||PED Rank|
This is far from a fluky result. Note the PED rankings of the national champions since 2000.
