Big 12 Offenses by the Numbers: Week 8

NCAA Basketball: Big 12 Basketball Tipoff

Week 8 was by in large more about defenses, but there were still some excellent offensive performances.

Iowa State’s Brock Purdy completed 81.8% of his passes 307 yards and two TDs. K-State’s Skylar Thompson completed 80% of his passes for a touchdown and 306 yards (although a scorer’s error originally only credited him 296 yards). West Virginia’s Leddie Brown reached triple-digit rushing yards (111) for the first time since the Week 3 upset of VA Tech. Kansas’ Devin Neal led all rushers in the game against Oklahoma in Lawrence with 100 yards, the second-highest total of his career (107 yards at Duke is his high).

Here are all the numbers you need to track Big 12 offenses through Week 8. As always, let the reader beware: Stats can be deceiving.

3-3-3-3-12

3 Rushing touchdowns for WVU’s Leddie Brown against TCU

3 Passing touchdowns for Oklahoma State’s Spencer Sanders against ISU

3 Touchdowns for K-State’s Deuce Vaughn (2 rushing, 1 receiving) against TTU

3 Sacks allowed by Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech

12 Receptions, a career-high, by Iowa State’s Xavier Hutchinson against OSU

 

TEAM SACKS ALLOWED

1. Baylor – 6 sacks allowed, 0.86 per game

T2. Iowa State – 8 sacks allowed, 1.14 per game

T2. TCU – 8 sacks allowed, 1.14 per game

4. Kansas – 9 sacks allowed, 1.29 per game

5. Oklahoma State – 10 sacks allowed, 1.43 per game

6. Kanas State – 12 sacks allowed, 1.71 per game

7. Texas Tech – 14 sacks allowed, 1.75 per game

8. Texas – 15 sacks allowed, 2.14 per game

9. Oklahoma – 17 sacks allowed, 2.12 per game

10. West Virginia – 17 sacks allowed, 2.43 per game

Note: Baylor’s offensive line remains the pass protection class of the league and ranks 8th nationally. The top 7 teams above all rank within the top 46 nationally. This is a league with a lot of good offensive lines. Oklahoma is barely allowing fewer sacks per game than Texas but has the higher total due to playing one more game than Texas.

SCORING OFFENSE

1. Oklahoma – 41.8 points per game, 334 total

2. Texas –41.6 points per game, 291 total

3. Baylor – 38.3 points per game, 268 total  

4. TCU – 34.3 points per game, 240 total

5. Texas Tech –34.2 points per game, 274 total

6. Iowa State – 32.3 points per game, 226 total

7. West Virginia – 28.4 points per game, 199 total

8. Kansas State – 27.0 points per game, 189 total

9. Oklahoma State – 25.7 points per game, 180 total

10. Kansas – 17.6 per points game, 123 total

Note: Kansas raised its average points per game by nearly a full point (16.7 to 17.6) against Oklahoma. Compare this list to the Big 12 standings, and you’ll see that the Big 12 isn’t so offense-oriented anymore.

 

TOTAL OFFENSE

1. Baylor – 471.7 yards per game; 3,302 total

2. Oklahoma – 469.0 yards per game; 3,752 total

3. Texas – 456.3 yards per game; 3,194 total

1. Baylor – 7.29

2. Oklahoma – 6.99

3. TCU – 6.94

4. Texas Tech – 6.87

6. Iowa State – 6.58

7. Kansas State – 6.06

8. West Virginia – 5.72

T9. Kansas – 5.2

T9. Oklahoma State – 5.2

Note: Baylor’s 7.29 yards per play is 3rd in the nation. Only Coastal Carolina (8.54) and Ohio State (8.44) are better. Oklahoma is 6th nationally; TCU is 9th; Texas Tech is 10th; Texas is 12th; Iowa State is 24th. In other words, 60% of the Big 12 ranks in the top 24 nationally in yards per play. Big 12 defenses are making more of an impact in the conference race, but offenses are still very much alive in the Big 12.

INDIVIDUAL PASSING EFFICIENCY

The formula is for pass efficiency is: ( { (8.4 x yards) + (330 x TDs) – (200 x INTs) + (100 x completions) } / attempts

1. Caleb Williams (OU) – 184.18 (787 yards; 8 TDs; 1 INT; 55 completions; 79 attempts)

2. Casey Thompson (UT) – 171.91 (1,274 yards; 15 TDs; 5 INTS; 89 completions; 137 attempts)

4. Tyler Shough (TTU) – 164.18 – 92 attempts; 64 completions; 872 yards; 3 INTs; 6 TDs

5. Skylar Thompson (KSU) – 164.15 (1,072* yards; 6 TDs; 3 INTS; 80 completions; 112 attempts)

6. Gerry Bohanon (BU) – 163.76 (1,568 yards; 12 TDs; 1 INT; 114 completions; 173 attempts)

7. Brock Purdy (ISU) – 163.02 (1,648 yards; 11 TDs; 4 INTS; 143 completions; 190 attempts)

8. Spencer Rattler (OU) – 153.24 (1,371 yards; 10 TDs; 5 INTS; 130 completions; 175 attempts)

11. Spencer Sanders (OSU) – 137.60 (1,184 yards; 9 TDs; 5 INTS; 90 completions; 152 attempts)

12. Jason Bean (KU) – 125.31 (1,178 yards; 6 TDs; 4 INTS; 94 completions; 163 attempts)

*As explained in the introduction, Sklyar Thompson was not originally credited for 10 yards of his passing against Texas Tech due to an in-game error by the scorer, and this has not yet been corrected by the NCAA or ESPN.

Note: The NCAA has a threshold for games played to be included in their rankings, so I had to manually calculate the pass efficiency for Shough, S. Thompson, and Williams.
