Following each game, 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 metrics. If you’re curious, here’s a glossary with detailed definitions, but I’ll include some of the more pertinent stuff here.

Everything below excludes garbage time, which kicked in once the Rebels scored a few times in the third quarter.


Five Factors

Ole Miss South Alabama
Ole Miss South Alabama
Efficiency (Success Rate) 53% 37%
Big Plays 7 4
Average Starting Field Position Own 27.8 Own 29.4
Finishing drives (Points/Scoring Opportunity) 5.7 4.3
Turnovers 1 0
The Five Factors were developed by Bill Connelly
  • 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.
