Bowl Season Reveals Big 12 Doesn’t Play Defense, but Neither Does Anyone Else

I went back and counted up the numbers between the 45 games played by Power 5 teams to see if in fact that Big 12 doesn’t play any defense (spoiler: it does not). What the numbers showed, though, is that nobody else does, either.

For however flawed bowl numbers are from year to year, the Big 12 put up an impressive net PPG compared to the rest of the country.
