The NCAA released the most recent APR ratings for all sports yesterday. The numbers released are for the 2011-12 academic year.
I broke them down by conference and ran a few calculations based on each schools' multi-year average, which is the average of the APR ratings over the last four seasons for each school. Here are the results.
First, let's look at the conferences as a whole. It's important to note that these figures represent the conferences as they were structured in the 2011-12 academic year.
According to the NCAA, the average for all football programs regardless of division is 949, so FBS teams as a whole are slightly outperforming the FCS programs.
Now let's look at the top- and bottom-performing schools. Keep in mind that, beginning with the 2014 season, programs must have a multi-year APR rating of 930 or better to compete in the postseason.
I must admit I didn't expect to see Miami on this list, unless we were talking about the one in Ohio. Also: must Alabama be good at everything?
Here are the best and worst scores by conference:
North Carolina (934)
Oklahoma State (926)
Notre Dame (973)
Northern Illinois (974)
Boise State (993)
Middle Tennessee (972)
Utah State (967)
New Mexico State (916)
