College Football Rankings 2011: 5 Most Dangerous Top 25 Offenses
Don't try telling college football's elite that defense wins championships.
Four of the nation's top seven teams and five of nine are among the country's top 10 scoring offenses.
Here is a look at the five most dangerous, starting with Brandon Weeden, Justin Blackmon and the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

Brandon Weeden and Justin Blackmon are the Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson of college football.
Oklahoma State's dynamic duo has hooked up for 534 yards and six scores while leading the Cowboys to the nation's best scoring average (51.4 points per-game).
When Weeden isn't throwing to Blackmon, he's spreading the ball around elsewhere to the tune of almost 1,500 yards and 12 TD's.

Like Oklahoma State, Oregon is averaging half a hundred per game (50.2).
Running back LaMichael James is the glue that holds the Ducks' offense together.
The junior tailback averages a whopping nine yards per carry, and he has rushed for eight scores.

When the Badgers got Russell Wilson, they became the nation's most balanced attack.
Wisconsin is third in the nation in scoring (48.4 points per game), and tailback Montee Ball and Wilson make up the best run-pass combination in all of college football.
The tandem has no doubt caused many Big Ten defensive coordinators to lose sleep.

Is there any quarterback in college football better than Andrew Luck?
In just five games, the Stanford signal-caller has thrown for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns while completing 73 percent of his passes.
The Cardinal offense hasn't missed a beat under first-year head coach David Shaw, and his quarterback is the reason why.

There isn't another offense in all of college football quite like Paul Johnson's Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
At a time when throw first, pass later spread and pro style offenses are the norm, Johnson employs an option attack where balls in the air are few and far between.
Tech's unorthodox attack is sixth in the nation in scoring offense (46.5) and second in rushing yards (2,163).
In the Ramblin' Wreck's first three games, they scored on their first play from scrimmage each time.
