Yards Allowed Per Play

Following up on some comments about the 2007 defense I made the other day, here's an expanded look at our performance. The number in the first column is the opponent's average yards gained per play over the course of the season, excluding the opponent's game against NC State. The second column is their performance against the Wolfpack. Green numbers: we held the opponent below their average.

UCF 5.76 4.46
BC 5.53 5.11
Clemson 5.30 6.83

FSU 5.20 6.05

ECU 5.92 3.75
UVA 4.72 4.24
Miami 4.80 4.24
UNC 5.09 4.81

UMd 4.93 6.30 (man, where were we on this day? still baffling.)

1st Half (0-5) 5.65 5.77
2nd Half (4-2) 5.02 4.79
