Week 4 FBS Drive-Point Efficiency and why it matters

Baylor is averaging almost 70 points per game in 2013. - Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

This season I've been tracking how efficiently each team converts opportunities into points. It's time to look at whether it matters.

In short, it matters. This should not come as a surprise to anyone.

First, this is a chart of the average W/L record for all teams from 2007-2012. As always, higher in the chart and further to the right is better. The colors indicate a team's season win/loss percentage (red is bad, green is good).

Clearly there is a strong relationship between offensive and defensive point-drive efficiency ratings and final win loss records.
