Some Notable 2013 Louisville Football Stats

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

I was looking up something else, when I got caught up in this research. Happens to me all the time. Good thing I no longer work, as my boss would be wondering where that report was he asked for, while I was looking at football stats. :)

There have been a few fans who were complaining about our slow style of play, limiting us in our number of Offensive plays. Penalties are another sore point. I started looking there, in the record book, and a few things jumped out at me.

I think we all are aware TB has had but 4 INTs this year, but the fewest ever for a season? 5 in 2004, Next closest is 7, done in 2001 & 2006

Punts: Fewest ever for a season 30. #4 on the list is 42, #7 is the 2006 season with 46. Currently, we have punted but 40 times, with 1 more game to play.

Turnovers: Fewest was 2012 season with 13. We have only 10 so far.

Fumbles: Fewest is 12, currently have 10

Fumbles lost: Fewest is 5, where we have lost 6 so far.

Total Offensive yards: Most is 6468. #6 is 2005 season with 5785. Currently have 5437, so we could move into #6 with a reasonable game.

And now for the biggies:

Offensive Plays: Most ever 918 Current 818 2006 had 867, which is reachable.

Most Penalties: 2007 is #10 with 93. Currently we have 83

Penalty yards: 2007 is #10 again, with 818. Currently 757

So, it appears the bad news is we can reach both the top ten most penalties ever, and the top ten most penalty yardage. The good news is that while we take a long time between plays, we are running more plays than most years, and can reach the Top 10 most ever list with a normal showing in the bowl game
