BYU Opponents have gained more yards than their averages in four of the six games.
BYU Opponents have gained more rushing yards than their averages in four of the six games.
BYU Opponents have gained more passing yards than their averages in four of the six games.

BYU Opponents have beaten their season PER averages in three of the six games.

BYU has scored more points than the opponents season averages in zero of the six games.

BYU has gained more rushing yards than the opponents averages in one of the six games.

That's right. The BYU offense has beaten an opponents in just ONE of the possible 30 categories this season. It is catastrophically bad this year. The defense has tried its best and been at least decent. But the offense is so abysmal that it is shocking. I have never seen such ineptitude.

so defense hovers close to average against opponents and offense has been abysmal.

If offense was doing the same, we could have some wins.

Hoge's 25 rushing yards put us over the top against Utah State ;).

Well the numbers don't lie. Can someone send these to Holmoe and Sitake?

This explains the 6 game losing skid, BYU coaches didn't have the statistical data they needed to make adjustments!
