Grading the Top 25 College Football Offenses Heading into Week 6

After a Week 5 that celebrated offense and left us pining for a little dose of the “D”, it seems prudent to evaluate the top point-scoring teams in the land.

Yes, we know there are lots of teams participating in the 2012 edition of score-a-palooza but how are they getting it done and what are each specific unit’s strengths and weaknesses?

The following slideshow takes the top 25 scoring offenses (they are ranked for your pleasure) in the nation and issues each a report card that includes grades in seven key subjects.

The categories include rushing and passing yards per game, yardage balance between the two attacks, turnovers, sacks allowed, third-down conversions and red zone performance.

The grades are based on each squad’s national ranking in each category and the GPA is a cumulative score based on all of the subjects, including each candidate receiving an additional “A” for being a top 25 scoring unit.

This comprehensive offensive evaluation tour de force will no doubt put both parents and students on red alert because, yes friends, it's report card day in college football.

As a note, teams that had outstanding library fines and/or negative lunch account balances at the time of this report are included in this listing as a service to the public. In no way does their inclusion infer release from these unresolved matters or support of such conduct.
