Top 25 QB’s in College Football’s Power Five Conferences (ND & BYU are included)

Let me begin by saying that this QB ranking is objective not subjective (other elements discussed here are subjective, based on a player’s potential, a prospect vs a  proven player, so to speak) and finally, the list will be evaluated by the criteria listed below!

  1. Completion Percentage: should be @ 60% or above to be considered above average
  2. Ratio TD’s to INT’s: should be a 2 TD to a 1 INT margin or better
  3. Total Passing Yards: looking for 2,500 passing yards or more
  4. Duel Threat or Pocket Passer to be considered a duel threat the QB must have rushed for 200 net yards (net yards is determined after factoring in sacks, lost yards)
  5. Win and loss Record: this is their record at the school or it transferred in, we will use record at their previous school!
