'By the Numbers' — New math for Vols

-22 — Yards rushing by Idaho State in its 090912_Oklahoma.ss_full.jpg

1 — Number of offensive plays run by Oklahoma before Idaho State called its first timeout. For the record, the Sooners’ first play was a 34-yard completion from Landry Jones to Ryan Broyles (pictured).

3.5 — Margin of victory in the ACC’s two conference games so far this season (Miami over Florida State, 38-34; Georgia Tech over Clemson, 30-27).

4 — Ohio State drives that began on USC’s side of the field. The Buckeyes only came up with two field goals from those opportunities.

5 — Losses by Big 12 teams to opponents from non-automatic qualifier conferences so far this season. The rest of the BCS automatic qualifier conferences have combined for only four such losses.

5 — Interceptions this season by UCLA sophomore defensive back Rahim Moore, who incredibly had number six wiped out near the end of the Tennessee game due to a phantom offsides penalty.

7 — Most plays Virginia ran on any of its 14 possessions in a 30-14 loss at home to TCU. Six of those possessions were of the three-and-punt variety.

14 — Tackles for losses by Texas Tech, including six sacks, in a 090912_VaTech.ss_full.jpg

329 — Rushing yards by Virginia Tech freshmen running backs in the 52-10 victory over Marshall. It was split evenly between David Wilson, who rushed for 165 of the yards, and Ryan Williams (pictured), who had the remaining 164.

456 — Yards passing by Texas Tech quarterback Taylor Potts in the blowout victory over Rice. Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that he distributed the football to 13 different receivers.

1,145 — Yards of total offense for Auburn in the first two games of the Gene Chizik era. Not too shabby, no matter who you’ve played.

1970 — The year that Auburn last racked up 500-plus yards in back-to-back games.

16,431 — Louisiana-Lafayette fans who saw their team beat Kansas State on a 48-yard field goal with 32 seconds left to lift the Ragin’ Cajuns to 2-0 for the first time since 1990.

2,550,000 — Dollars it will cost Colorado boosters to buyout the remaining three years of Dan Hawkins’ contract after the conclusion of the 2009 season . . . if he makes it to the end of the season.
