Big Ten quarterbacks in Total QBR after Week 12

Big Ten quarterbacks in Total QBR after Week 12

With just one week left in the college football regular season, it’s time to take another look at which Big Ten quarterbacks are the best at their position, including Ohio State football CJ Stroud.

The metric we love to use more than any other ESPN’s overall QBR rating. We believe this is the best performance indicator because it takes into account many aspects that others do not, including the level of competition.

So what is Total QBR? According to ESPN, the Adjusted Total Quarterback Rating “rates a quarterback in all types of play on a scale of 0-100, adjusted for the strength of the opposing defense faced.”

Okay, we’re in the game.

So where are Stroud and JJ McCarthy’s other Big Ten callers? MichiganSean Clifford of Pension stateand Peyton Thorne of State of Michigan after week 12 of the college football season? Stroud led the way all season, but didn’t have his usual impressive day against Maryland in a tighter-than-expected game.

Here’s how things stack up after another week of action in the heart of the country.
