2012 College Football Season
The Effects of the New NCAA Kickoff Rule
Taking at look at how the new rules for kickoffs affected college football in 2012.
Let's talk about pace
Adjusting for run-pass rates, which teams were the fastest (and slowest) in the country last year?
Does big blitzing matter?
We take a look at charting data to decide if big blitzing matters in the long run.
The charting project continues with a look at fourth-down passing.
The effect of pressure
What happens when a defense brings five pass rushers? Six?

Anatomy of a big play
How the perfect play call, perfect execution, or both, can break a big play and potentially change a game.
College football's curveball
College football coaches lean on the no-back on third-and-6, but nobody makes it the focal point of their offense.
2005-12 Targets and catches
In which Harry Douglas finally gets his due and Marqise Lee's standout season stands out even further.
UCLA's adjustments fall just short
While UCLA made adjustments in the Pac-12 title game, Stanford’s will was still too much.
Can UCLA rewrite the ending?
While the odds are against UCLA, if college football has taught us anything this year, it’s that you never really know what you’re going to get from week to week. Hopefully this sequel proves more entertaining than the unimaginative original.

TOs to TDs: The Oregon Way
In last week’s 59-17 victory over Cal, Oregon continued a season-long trend of turning opponent’s turnovers into quick points.
The most balanced squad in the nation
While it is easy to give all the credit for their 10-0 start to their Heisman front-runner quarterback, the Kansas State Wildcats should be praised as the most-balanced team in the country.
Week 11 box scores
Well, that certainly changes everything, doesn't it...
The Play of the Week
The TCU Horned Frogs opted to go for two and attempt to win the game on the road rather than let the game play out in a third overtime.
