CFB Defenses Ranked by Drive Outcomes

After months of plugging away at my abacus, I've ranked 118 NCAA defenses by how drives ended against them. Think of this like a batting average for college football defenses. No surprises, Alabama and LSU are #1 and #2 in terms of stopping scores, Kansas is by far the worst (allowing a score 60% of the time!), and Texas is middle of the road at #31 #29. Note: I haven't corrected for opponent quality, so its probably just best to look within a conference. Also, the attached image is biiiiig. And lastly, I'll be writing this up in a bigger analysis post of Texas' defense, but I thought I'd get your input on this. Plus its a neat looking picture. Final Note: I should have also mentioned that the teams are ranked by fraction of drives ending in a score, with a greater weighting given to touchdowns than field goals.
