Looking at the Most Lethal Offenses this 2015 College Football Odds Season
Texas A&M Aggies
Kevin Sumlin and the Aggies showed the world that Johnny Manziel wasn’t the reason they won the previous season. Last year Manziel moved to the NFL, but the Aggies still managed to have a good performance. The team averaged 35.2 points per game, throwing for an average of 305.5 yards, and rushing for an average of 149.9. Most of these points were against SEC defenses, who according to football experts have the stingiest defenses in the country. This season, the Aggies turned to highly recruited sophomore quarterback, Kyle Allen, who took over the starting job from Kenny Hill after the team lost three straight games late in the season. Allen will be more comfortable running the offense, so expect them to put up bigger numbers this season.

Last season, the Tigers had one of the best offenses in the country, and are expected to get better this year. The team averaged 30.8 points last season, throwing for an average of 261.8 yards, and rushing for an average of 146.5 yards. Deshaun Watson had an injury filled season after being named as the starting quarterback, but in the limited time he was on the field, the freshman completed 67.9% of his passes, for 1,466 yards, 14 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Now that he has recovered from his ACL injury, he is expected to lead a very potent offense that has players like Mike Williams, who had over 1,000 receiving yards last season, Artavis Scott, and running back Wayne Gallman, who had a strong finish at the end of next season and is only getting better.

TCU Horned Frogs
TCU felt they were robbed at the end of last season, this might be the reason why so many players are returning to the team for one last chance to win the National Championship. Last season, the Horned Frogs averaged 46.5 points per game, throwing for an average of 326.2 yards, and rushing for an average of 206.9 yards per game.The Horned Frogs will have Trevone Boykin’s, who had 3,901 yards, with 33 touchdowns, and also ran for 707 yards and 8 touchdowns, returning to lead the team once again. Aaron Green and B.J. Catalon, who rushed for a combined 1,415 yards and 19 touchdowns, will also be back, as well as their leading receiver from last season, Josh Doctson, who had over 1,000 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns last season.

Ohio State Buckeyes
The defending national champions won the championship game by playing great defense, but they are also one of the most talented offensive teams in the country. Last season, they averaged 44.8 points per game, throwing for an average of 247.1 yards, and rushing for an average of 264.5 yards per game. The team is loaded at the quarterback position, with three quarterbacks that are capable of winning the Heisman trophy, in Braxton Miller, J.T. Barrett, and Cardale Jones, who led the team to the national championship.
As if the abundance of talent at the quarterback position isn’t enough, the Buckeyes also have Ezekiel Elliot, who was a big part of their run to the championship, and was clearly one of the best running backs in college football last season. Regardless of who the team decided to start at the quarterback position, the Buckeyes are as talented as it gets on the offensive side of the ball, so expect them to put up some staggering numbers next season, starting with their rematch with Virginia Tech, the only team that beat them last season.
