Following each game (including the bad ones), I’ll be posting numbers that tell a broader story than what a traditional box score may offer. Looking at Bill C.’s stat profiles is a great way to quickly identify a team’s strengths and weaknesses once you become familiar with the stats. If you’re curious, here’s a glossary with detailed definitions, but I’ll include some of the more pertinent stuff here.

Five Factors

Ole Miss Cal
Ole Miss Cal
Efficiency (Success Rate) 34% 35%
Big Plays 6 12
Average Starting Field Position 25.9 30.6
Finishing Drives (Points per Scoring Opportunity) 2.8 2.9
Turnovers 3 2
  • A successful play occurs when you gain: 50 percent of necessary yardage on first down, 70 percent on second down, and 100 percent on third and fourth down.
  • Explosive/big plays are defined here as runs of 12+ yards or passes of 16+ yards.
  • A scoring opportunity is a first down inside the opponent’s 40-yard line.
  • Passing downs are defined as second down with at least eight yards to go or third/fourth with at least five to go. All other situations are standard downs.
