Interpreting Defensive Performance

The emergence of the up-tempo spread systems skews the defensive total yardage numbers due to the increased number of plays, but the yards per play statistic doesn’t provide much, if any, positive adjustment. UNC is allowing 5.49 yards per play, good for 68th nationally. The last time UNC allowed more than 5.25 yards per play for a season was in Bunting’s final year in ’06 (5.7). (Inside Carolina)
