Week 5: Best Defenses in NCAA Football

Yesterday I posted on the Top 25 NCAA FBS offense teams in terms of the complex invasion sports model. Today I am going to look at the Top 25 NCAA FBS teams in terms of points against (or defense). Thus I am only looking at points against using the four key factors of NCAA FBS production: acquiring the ball, maintaining possession, moving the ball and scoring efficiency. I also make allowances for different conferences.

Here is the list of the 2012 Top 25 NCAA "defenses" through week #5.
