Pass Rating in the SEC

Recommended Posts

Passing rating of 130 or better in the SEC:

  • From 2000-2008 (1320 games), SEC teams had a pass rating of at least 130 during 44.5 percent of the games. Teams with a pass-rating of at least 130, compiled a win percentage of .821.
  • From 2009-2016 (1368 games), SEC teams had a pass rating of at least 130 during 53.7 percent of the games. Reaching a pass rating of at least 130 meant a win percentage of .819.
  • During the past eight seasons (2009-2016), we have witnessed an increase of 20.7 percent in passing games with a rating of at least 130, compared to the nine seasons from 2000 to 2008. Overall, teams in the SEC averaged 212.7 yards passing per game from 2000 to 2008. SEC teams from 2009-2016 have averaged 221.5 yards passing per game, a 4.1 percent increase in passing yardage per game.

Though there has been an increase in games with 130 pass ratings, the win percentage is basically the same.  During the time span Malzahn has been at Auburn from 2009-2011 and 2013-2016, the Auburn pass-offense ranks No. 5 out of the 14 teams in terms of producing a 130 pass-rating. The league average is 53.2% and Auburn is No. 5 at 61.3%. Arkansas, Alabama, Texas A&M and Georgia finished higher than Auburn. Looking back at the last 17 teams to win the SEC Championship (2000-2016), the average national ranking in pass-efficiency is No. 17. The average national ranking in pass-efficiency for the MNC winner during the same time period is No. 13
