By the Numbers: Non-league edition

Harvard and Dartmouth already have opened Ivy League play and there still are four non-league games to be played, but the timing for a non-league statistical breakdown doesn’t get any better than this. Because of difference in schedule difficulty and the skewed nature of games against major conference opposition, the following statistics are taken only from games against teams outside of BCS conferences. In addition to adjusting for strength of schedule, a non-major statistical filter also should provide a more meaningful idea of what to expect against Ivy opposition.

Here are the numbers, with team-by-team report cards to follow:
