Ole Miss vs. South Carolina: Advanced box score

New, comments

Rebels 44, Gamecocks 48

NCAA Football: South Carolina at Mississippi Matt Bush-USA TODAY Sports

Every Sunday, I post numbers that help 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 figure out 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

Category Mississippi South Carolina
Category Mississippi South Carolina
Efficiency (Success Rate) 53.1% 43.5%
Big Plays 9 8
Average Starting Field Position 28.7 29.9
Finishing Drives (Points per Scoring Opportunity) 4.9 5.9
Turnovers 1 0
A play is successful if you gain 50 percent of necessary yardage on first down, 70 percent on second down, and 100 percent on third and fourth down. Big plays are gains of 20+ yards. Scoring opportunities include trips inside the opponent’s 40-yard line + all touchdowns from outside the 40.

Points per drive doesn’t include Carolina’s kick return in the first quarter.

Passing Downs are defined as second down with 8 or more yards to go or third/fourth down with 5 or more yards to go. Everything else is a standard down.

Opportunity Rate is the percentage of carries that gain 5+ yards. Stuff Rate is the percentage of runs that are stopped at or behind the line of scrimmage. Highlight Yards per Opportunity measures how much you’re able to do after getting to the second level of the defense. QB runs don’t include sacks.
