Tuesday Numbers, Week 5

Four weeks of the college football season are in the books, so let’s look at a few numbers.

For Alabama, the numbers are good.  The Tide ranks first in the league in total defense (250.3 yards per game) and second in total offense (587.5)  The Tide is converting third downs at a clip of 61.82%, good for second in the league, and is holding it’s opponents to a conversion rate of 24.00%, which is also good for second.

Tide receiver Amari Cooper continues to lead the league in receptions (43) and yardage (655) and continues on track to destroy all Alabama receiving records.

If you consider quarterback ratings, Bama signal caller Blake Sims is your man, with a league-best rating of 190.77.

About the only place where the Tide stinks is a turnover margin of -.75 per game, good for 13th in the league.
