I have recently started playing out the 2016 college football season in UQ College Football but had a question about the ratings. For a team's beginning offense rating why would a team who averaged more ppg in the season have a lower offensive rating? For example Western Ky. Averaged 45.5 ppg and has an offensive rating of 33, while Louisville averaged 42.5 ppg and yet had a higher offensive rating of 34? Just cust curious. Really enjoy the game!
A team's real life opposition is also factored among other things. There are a lot of factors that go into creating the ratings, to get everything to "match" real life.
