Civil War: Just the stats, and maybe a little spin

With the game today, let's take a quick look at a few of the stats. All numbers were gather from the NCAA.org's Statistics and Records section and are current as of Today.

Individual Rushing Offense

Rank Player Pos Cl Gm Carries Net TDs Avg Ydspgm
9 Jacquizz Rodgers, Oregon St. RB SO 11 239 1313 19 5.49 119.36
10 LaMichael James, Oregon RB FR 11 190 1310 11 6.89 119.09
84 Jeremiah Masoli, Oregon QB JR 10 105 619 12 5.90 61.90

 

Not too much to say here. The big thing that stands out that James and Masoli have a combined total of 23 touchdowns. What this also shows you is that Masoli seems to run just a little bit more once they get on the other side of the 50 yard line. The other stat that isn't shown here is that James leads all FBS players with 18 runs over 20 yards. Still, nothing to be too worried about.

Individual Passing

Rank Player Pos Cl Gm Patt Pcomp Int Comppct Pyds Ydsatt YdsCmp TDs Compgm
10 Sean Canfield, Oregon St. QB SR 11 370 260 6 70.27 2797 7.56 10.76 19 23.64
67 Jeremiah Masoli, Oregon QB JR 10 264 154 4 58.33 1865 7.06 12.11 14 15.40

 

I think pretty much everyone has know that Canfield has a laser guided arm. Yea he has a few more interceptions the Masoli, but he's also has a 106 more passing attempts. Both QB's are throwing an interception once in every 60 passing attempts.

Receiving Yards Per Game

Rank Player Pos Cl Gm Catches Yds TDs Rec/Gm Yds/Catch Yds/Gm
31 James Rodgers, Oregon St. WR JR 11 77 865 8 7.00 11.23 78.64
76 Damola Adeniji, Oregon St. WR SR 11 47 672 4 4.27 14.30 61.09

 

Here's a surprising stat, no Duck receiver is in the top 100. We've got James in there which most Beaver fans wouldn't be surprised to see, but Adeniji  being in there is a real surprise as he's really started to show up in the last half of the season

40 Oregon 11 421 1437 3.41 14 130.64 9 2 0

 

I'd say these are pretty even matchups. The Ducks are averaging 80 more yards and have 10 more touchdown on the year then the Beavers. The Ducks are running for more yards, yet the Beavers are holding teams to less rushing yards. This should be one of the best part of the game to watch Thursday.

We pretty much covered the passing portion earlier, but the interesting thing here is difference between the two defenses. If you recall we started off with a horrible passing defense and let UNLV, Cincy, and Arizona rack up some big games on us before we finally got things under control. Hell, don't tell anyone this but we let Portland State rack up 274 passing yards on us.....ouch. But over our last 3 games we've only allowed an average of 195. Things are a lot better here then they were at the beginning of this year.

40 Oregon St. 11 703 3746 5.33 33 340.55 8 3 0

 

The numbers here are also pretty even. The only one that really stands out is the Offensive TD's where Oregon has 10 more then OSU. I think the most surprising thing here is that OSU has 37 more total yards then Oregon does, I expected to see Oregon a lot higher then us.

Once again nothing here that hasn't been covered before.

In closing, nothing about these stats really has me too worried. Yea there's a few things that have stood out, but the Civil War has always been one of those games where you throw this stuff out the window and anyone could win. I believe that Thursdays game is going to come down to mistakes and heart. We're going to have to play a perfect game to beat Oregon and represent the Pac-10 in that bowl game who's name I won't mention for fear of jinxing it. With both the Rodgers brothers healthy, Canfield passing with the accuracy he's developed this year and spreading out the ball to all of his receivers I'm certain that we won't have that horrible game we had last year.

:) GO BEAVS!
