What's the point of tempo? In Texas's case, an increased tempo has helped the Longhorns put up more yards per game, despite not being quite as effective per play. Last season, Texas averaged 68.54 plays per game, and 26.99 seconds per snap. The Longhorns averaged 6.3 yards per play and 434.6 yards per game.
Below, I've listed not just Texas's numbers for this year, but also a listing for the rest of the Big 12, so you can see how the Longhorns stack up with the rest of the conference.
|TEAM||PLAYS PER GAME||SECONDS PER PLAY||YARDS PER PLAY||YARDS PER GAME|
|Baylor||79.0 plays per game||20.29 seconds per play||9.1 yards per play||715.2 yards per game|
|BIG 12 AVERAGE||73.81||23.80||5.9||434.5|
