Stats LLC Inks Deal With UPS For New College Football Metrics
Stats LLC has struck a multiyear deal with UPS to create a new statistical measure for college football blending team effectiveness across offense, defense and special teams. The UPS Team Performance Index will measure performance across 13 different statistical factors, and will be distributed to Stats LLC commercial data clients as well as to the public through various social media channels. UPS already is the NCAA's official logistics partner, and the new alignment furthers the global shipping outfit's involvement in college sports. "It was designed to identify well-balanced teams that do multiple things well," said Stats LLC Senior VP Greg Krikorsky. The index will be updated weekly beginning Sept. 17.
