Ohio State’s QBR ranks 99th in the nation, WVU No. 1


One of the biggest storylines entering the 2015 college football season involved the Ohio State Buckeyes’ quarterback competition. Through three weeks, Cardale Jones and J.T. Barrett have split reps and things aren’t going as well as Buckeye Nation was hoping they would be.

Per Fox Sports, Ohio State’s two-quarterback system has resulted in a sultry 99th ranking, compared to last year’s overall QBR of 167.7 when J.T. Barrett was a one-man wolfpack.

“…For all the talk about how Ohio State has three QBs who could start virtually anywhere in college football, the Buckeyes quarterback play actually has been pretty suspect,” Bruce Feldman wrote. “OSU actually ranks No. 99 in the country in QB rating and has a 4-4 TD-INT ratio, and that rating drops down to No. 115 with just a 38 percent completion rate on third downs. Last season, OSU had a 167.73 rating for No. 2 in the country.”

Other FBS teams faring better than the Ohio State quarterbacks include Arkansas State (118.98), Miami of Ohio (121.23) and Wyoming (125.05). Meanwhile, programs slightly less fortunate than OSU’s 116.53 rating are Florida Atlantic (115.90), Tulane (114.11) and Old Dominion (113.36).

Perhaps the stats will get Urban Meyer to rethink his strategy, but until then, the highest QBR in the nation is 199.91 owned by West Virginia.
