NCAA QB’s ranked by yards per attempt

At Bias Free Sports, we like taking a different look at statistics in sports because we think they have greater meaning.  For example, instead of innings pitched, we like to look at total pitch count, because we think that is a more reliable indicator of how efficient a pitcher is performing.  Similarly, in college and pro football, we like to look at QB’s and RB’s in terms of yards passing per attempt or yards rushing per attempt, because it tends to show the efficiency or consistency of a passer or rusher over time.  So after your first week, here are the college football QB’s ranked by yards/average (minimum 10 pass attempts; a lot of these numbers will be inflated because they were compiled against FCS teams–they will tend to drift back as they get into their conference schedule):
