Each week, we'll look at some statistics involving individuals and/or teams that we find intriguing.
1. Up in the air. Four schools have thrown just one TD pass, and two of them are Big Six programs. One is Vanderbilt, whose lack of passing production, frankly, isn't surprising. The other is Illinois, which has QB Juice Williams and WR Arrelious Benn. Benn might be the most underutilized offensive player in the nation; he has five catches (for just 42 yards) and one rush (for 8 yards) this season.
2. Time to get tough. A cool stat from the folks at cfbstats.com is that Washington is allowing 7.3 yards per carry on first down. If you watched the Huskies get gashed repeatedly by Stanford's Toby Gerhart this past Saturday, that stat is easy to believe. That's not the worst figure nationally; that belongs to Florida Atlantic, which is allowing 8.3 yards on each first-down run. USC's defense has the lowest per-carry average on first down, at just 1.3 yards.
