Tennessee Vols statistical ranking trends – after BYU

Looking beyond the W-L record, the Vols’ national stat rankings show some welcome progress in rushing offense and sacks allowed, and the defense got better but not as much as you might think. Here’s a closer look.

Offense

Climbed out of the Bottom 30: Rushing offense, sacks allowed

Fell out of the Top 30: 3rd down conversion percentage, red zone offense, passing offense.

Defense

Climbed out of the Bottom 30: Rushing defense

Nearly everything here is better, but most not nearly as much as you’d think. Still major problems on third down.

Special Teams

This is still mostly garbage at this point, but punting remains a strength. Kickoff returns took a hit this week.

Turnovers and Penalties

This table is sorted first by category and then by the BYU column, but you can’t tell because Tennessee is currently good at not committing penalties but bad at turnovers.
