National Stat Rankings: UW in Focus


After Week 10 in College Football.

The University of Washington Football team by the stats in comparison with the rest of the FBS. Some of these stats are individual stats and some are team stats. Be careful to look at the “National Rank” column, as some categories do not include every player/team but instead will skip down to the closest UW stat.

UW still tends to find themselves at the bottom when it comes to defensive stats. Even their offensive stats have taken a hit as of late. Keith Price is falling behind in the touchdown passes and Kearse hasn’t caught a touchdown in a couple of weeks.

Chris Polk however, has been doing great at improving his numbers. In fact, one stat that is not listed above is Polk’s rushing touchdowns, he has 9 on the season. That puts him in 26th place in the nation and only a few touchdowns from being in the top 10. This may be a future stat we keep an eye on.

UW faces a statistically similar opponent in USC this week when it comes to offensive numbers. However, USC’s defense does stack up better in the nation than Washington’s defense.
