The Wall Street Journal Takes a Stopwatch to Oregon

Oregon Ducks
If you have a couple minutes to kill this morning at work, there's an interesting read for college football fans in the Wall Street Journal.

The Journal clocked how long it takes Oregon and other top-ranked football schools between plays on offense. And the paper found the Ducks, heading into this week's game against USC, aren't the fastest-operating team with an average time between plays of about 23 seconds. (The norm in college football is about 34 seconds.) The fastest-team-in-America distinction goes to Oklahoma, which averages about 21 seconds between plays.

The paper does conclude that Oregon has the "sport's pre-eminent attack" and picks the Ducks to win 38-27.

OK, back to work.
