    Dude check out this "Top running backs in the country" list. Moss isn't even in the top 15. Ahead of him were CJ Verdell (Oregon), and Eno Benjamin.

    Moss isn't even mentioned. Talk about disrespect.

    Q: Why wouldn't Moss even be mentioned even though he plays in a top tier conference against top tier opponents?

    A: Because he plays for Utah, and the only people who care about Utah athletics are people who live in Utah.

    OK -- So since I'm a numbers nerd, I took a little time a surfed around the NCAA statistics website to run down some numbers. A really user friendly website allows anyone to search any statistical category really fast. I took the original 15 on the list from that website that I posted earlier, and threw all of the numbers into a table.

    Table A shows the raw data for all players on that list so far this year.

    Table B shows those same players ranked according to TDs over the same period.

    The orange highlighted numbers are PAC12 players. It appears through this exercise that Moss is the leader in the PAC12, although there are more prolific players outside of the conference that almost double Moss's output -- Wisconsin's Johnathan Taylor for example.

    I think it's safe to say that Moss is the best Running Back this side of the Rockies.

    How about yards per attempt, if youíve already got the data in a spreadsheet?

    Yep, through the magic of Excel I was able to resort on Yards/Attempt. Mr. Moss ranks 4th. Interesting that Eno Benjamin ranks almost dead last in this category...

    Yeah I figured he had better stats in this area, which is something the NFL really looks for. They also look at yards after contact and Iím sure he is solid there too.

    Utah opened as an 18.5 favorite, but was recently bumped back even further to 21.5.

    The O/U is currently at 37.5 and considering that Utah averages 32 points a game, it looks like Vegas is anticipating Cal gets two field goals.
