It’s been about three weeks since we last reported on college football as a whole and while some things have changed slightly, others have been reinforced.
- 2012 can be described as the year of the turnover. They have become much more important to winning this year than last and winners average 1 turnover less per game than losers.
- Home field advantage while a factor, is not what it appears to be across the board. Perhaps for specific teams, but not in general and it is almost non-existent in conference games.
- Winners average more penalty yards than losers and here’s an odd stat that I tweeted on Thursday – Teams with 100+ yards in penalties are 42-26 (61.76%) in 2012.
