First down percentages

Posted by cuorange on October 14, 2009

These stats shifted a bit after the Maryland game towards more passes on first down in opponent’s territory. Whether that was a conscious decision by the Clemson coaches or a matter of game circumstance is up for debate.

Still, in over three-quarters of the plays when the Tigers have a first down and 10 in opponents territory they run the ball. Conservative. Very conservative.

Down/Distance Field Position Run% Pass %
1/10 <=Midfield 61.7% 38.3%
1/10 >=Opponents 49 77.4% 22.6%
Total 67.9% 32.1%
