Even though the best offense is supposedly a good defense, if offense is all you’ve got, well, that’s pretty good stuff too.
Indeed, what if the “best offense” really is the best offense, and what if scoring points yourself is better than stopping your opponent from ringing up the scoreboard?
Isn’t it better to give than to receive?
The following slideshow boldly predicts, and then ranks for your pleasure, the 20 highest-scoring college football teams for the 2012 season.
Each squad highlighted in this exclusive presentation returns a generous number of battle-tested offensive linemen and experienced players at the “skill” slots to make a point explosion seem almost inevitable.
It’s key to remember that this list doesn’t have a shred of defensive truth in it, but if any of these teams can stop other squads from scoring this season—watch out, they could win it all.
The returning starters and experience data included in this analysis are drawn from Phil Steele’s invaluable 2012 College Football Preview magazine.
