2018 Possession Margins

 

Teams are ranked according to average possession margin (APM), the average lead or deficit the team has held at the start of its non-garbage possessions. The remaining colums provide the distribution of non-garbage possessions contested by the given team against their opponents with the following scoring margins: leading by 25 or more points (W25+), leading by 17 or more points (W17+), leading by 9 or more points (W9+), leading by any margin (W), tied with their opponent (T), trailing by any margin (L), trailing by 9 or more points (L9+), trailing by 17 or more points (L17+), or trailing by 25 or more points (L25+).

Ratings and supporting data are calculated from the results of non-garbage possesssions in FBS vs. FBS games.
