2006 Texas has a unique feature - the Horns held opponents to only 2.3 yards per rush, but allowed 7.5 per pass attempt.  
So in Whoa Nellie, they've got the best run defense rating (-4) and the worst pass defense rating (X).

WOW!
I just created 1973 Alabama for an order and their offense is incredible!  
1973 was a special year, as the top 6 teams going into the bowls were all undefeated helmets (Penn St was probably fringe back then, but I digress).  

When I notice a certain team having a great offense (especially a run-heavy one), I tend to compare it to 1971 Oklahoma.  The Sooners squad that just fell short in one of the games of the century - it averaged 12.8 yards per pass attempt and 6.6 per rush.  These are both insanely high - the 12.8 is among the highest ever (yeah, they rarely passed, but it paid off!) and the 6.6 is top-5 all time (that I've found).  

And the '73 Tide?
13.5 yards per pass attempt
6.1 yards per rush

They also had a great defense, as all the top teams did back then.  It's truly incredible that ND was able to beat them 24-23 in the Sugar Bowl that year.

I thought this worth a share:  of the 54 teams listed in the next 4 orders I'm making, I don't have to create any of them.  It's fantastic!

I failed to mention it here, but our 1-year anniversary of being a thing was 9/13.  So that's cool.  

We've got a sale this week to celebrate.

Not sure if I've mentioned this, but UNC has a surprisingly thorough football archive.
