Teams are ranked in the table below by net points scored per drive (NPD), the difference between points scored per offensive drive (OPD) and points allowed per opponent offensive drive (DPD). Points per drive from long starting field position for the offense (OLD) and opponent offenses (DLD) are calculated on possessions that begin inside the offense's own 20-yard line. Points per drive from middle starting field position for the offense (OMD) and opponent offenses (DMD) are calculated on possessions that begin from the offense's own 20-yard line to its own 40-yard line. Points per drive from short starting field position for the offense (OSD) and opponent offenses (DSD) are calculated on possessions that begin less than 60 yards from the end zone.

Note that in this data set, successful extra points and two-point conversions following touchdowns are included in the scoring results of offensive drives, and safeties are recorded as a scoring result of negative-two points. Ratings and supporting data are calculated from the results of non-garbage possesssions in FBS vs. FBS games.
