Where does Monday's Game Rank?

Josh Hancher

My data set goes back to 2018 with every snap from every FBS team.  Here are the Georgia games over that span.  This chart is ranked by success rate, but each stat is ranked.  Monday's CFP Final was the 11th highest offensive success rate (59.7%), 6th best EPA (.586) , and 15th best YPP (8.2).  That is pretty good.   This success rate was actually bettered 3 times in 2022. That is pretty pretty good...

Defensively, Georgia held TCU to 31.4% success rate (18th best), 3.5 YPP (14th), and -0.013 EPA (18th).  Having a Top 15 game offensively and defensively versus the #3 CFP (and Saban) ranked team is an exclamation point - even if Twitter wants to always asterisk this run. Best that I can calculate, the 4.7 Net YPP on Monday was the 4th best against any Power 5 Team only behind 2021 games versus Vandy, Kentucky, and Tech.

Georgia's has improved its offensive success rate each of the years on Todd Monken, and they rank 5th in Power 5 from 2018-2022

Over the same seasons, Georgia's Defense has consistently held opposing offenses under 40% success rate.  A little surprising to see them only 8th in this metric. That said, they rank 3rd in both defensive YPP and Defensive EPA.  One has to factor in that during this time frame, Georgia has played in 4 SECCG's and 4 CFP Playoff Games.  Few if any can claim that many quality of opponents, and all playing their best at the end of the season.
