Post-Game Analysis: Texas vs ULM (with NCN Metrics)

The NinosCorner Number (NCN) for the analysis of a team showcases a team’s efficiency by calculating offensive and defensive productivity metrics.  These numbers are categorized into two sections; Offense (NCN-OFF) and Defense (NCN-DEF).  Offense and Defense Success Rates are calculated in order to derive the final NCN-OFF and NCN-DEF.

Success Rates are calculated through the completion of successful plays.  Successful plays occur when a play gains enough yardage to keep an offense progressing towards a 1st down (50% of yardage on 1st down, 70% on 2nd down, or 100% on 3rd/4th down).  In addition to Success Rates, other statistical metrics are incorporated into our proprietary formula to calculate the final NCN-OFF and NCN-DEF.  NCNs are based on a 100 point composite score with higher NCNs equating to a better overall score for respective teams. 

In addition, Explosive Play (XP) rates are calculated to showcase the lethality and instant-strike ability of an offense.  XPs are defined as any play that gains more than 15 yards on a running play and 20 or more yards on a passing play at the collegiate level.
