Georgia's Scoring Against Opponents' Averages

Kyle offered a snapshot comparison of points scored by opponents against Georgia compared to their season averages.  Without drawing any conclusions, I thought I'd take a look at the flip side: points scored by Georgia against each opponent compared to the opponent's average of points allowed.  There are some points in there by special teams and off of nicely positioned turnovers, I'll Grantham you, so it's not a pure look at the offense.  But it appears at a glance that the Bulldogs are doing better against opponents' defenses than most of those opponents' other foes have done, including the scoring performance in half of the losses.

 

OpponentPts./Gm. allowed (Season)Pts. by Georgia
Louisiana-Lafayette 39.9 55
South Carolina 18.9 6
Arkansas 23.4 24
Mississippi State 17 12
Colorado 25.6 27
Tennessee 29.4 41
Vanderbilt 24.9 43
Kentucky 31.6 44


As has been pointed out before in a number of places, we can moderate our happiness about point production by reminding ourselves that it was just Tennessee, Vandy, and Kentucky, but we've scored a lot more against those teams than others have. 

By request, I took a look at the same data, but in SEC games only and excluding Georgia's points from the opponents' averages.  Here ya go.
