Leading the pack

Let's start with the disclaimer that the numbers are the result of one game against an overmatched Georgetown team, but I couldn't help but notice that Brook Hart and Ryan Fodor currently are No. 1 and 2 in the passing efficiency ratings in the NCAA's Football Championship Subdivision database.

Hart, who was 14 of 18 for 176 yards and 3 touchdowns, has a QB rating of 214.9 while Fodor (10 of 15, 185 yards and a TD pass) has a 192.3 QB rating.

Joe Hathaway is tied with fellow Ivy Leaguers Matt Curtis of Harvard and James Develin of Brown with 3 1/2 tackles for losses while Tom Mante is tied for first with an average of two field goals a game. He would be leading the nation in punting with a 52-yard average but his three punts weren't enough to qualify for the ratings.

Sophomore receiver Jordan Forney is fourth with an average of 136 receiving yards a game and tied for second in scoring at 12 points a game.

In the team ratings, Yale is first in total offense, scoring offense and passing efficiency, second in passing offense, scoring defense and net punting, fourth in rushing defense and sixth in total defense.

It was curious that the No. 2 team in passing efficiency is the same Bucknell team which played Cornell last year. Yale will be playing Cornell Saturday at 1 p.m. in the road and Icy League opener.
