"What happened to that BYU offense?" Somebody asked

a question along those lines below. It went along with, why isn't ours (UVa's) that good?

My first thought was that BYU had more athletic QBs, and an OL that was well established with experience together.

But then I thought, perhaps we should look at BYU productivity under Anae. He was Mendenhall's OC for 3 years, 2013-2015, at BYU before coming to C'ville. So I looked,at the results for those 3 years and pulled points scored against top 40 teams (using Massey) as well as any scores against lower ranked teams that jumped out. My thought being that numbers cam get inflated against lower rated teams amd that top 40 competition is generally going to be comparable to most ACC play and IU this year. I am including the defensive rank of the team following the overall ranking, so it reads overall rank, (defense), points scored.

No.22 (19) scored 28, bowl, L
No.64 (7) scored 16, KC vs Miz, L
No.95 (87) scored 17, away, W
No.9 (5) scored 0, away, L
No.38 (37) scored 23, away, L
No.40 (64) scored 33, away, W

No.101 (117) scored 27, away, W
No.27 (70) scored 30, away, L
No.67 (49) scored 24 in OT, away, L
No.51 (18) scored 20, home, L

No.15 (19) scored 16, bowl, L
No.28 (22) scored 13, away, L
No.25 (9) scored 17, away, L
No.37 (38) scored 13, home, L
No.30 (23) scored 40, home, W
No.118 (94) scored 16 (UVa storm game), L
