Defense may win championships, but a college football team can earn a spot in a prominent bowl game solely because of its dominant offense.
A national championship is the ultimate goal in college football. However, many programs consider a chance to play in one of the other four BCS bowl games a small victory when the regular season comes to an end.
Many college football teams have the offensive firepower to win the necessary number of games throughout the regular season to be considered for a BCS bowl game or another one of the many prominent bowl games the NCAA has to offer.
There are only a handful of football teams across the country that have to put their defenses out on the field just to make a few stops throughout a game, allowing their offenses an opportunity to top the production of their opponents in order to walk away with a win.
