SAT scores and college football

A fantastic piece of work in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution yesterday — an investigation into how schools’ athlete and football SAT scores compare with the student body as a whole.

The piece — reported through open-records requests — shows the lengths to which some are going to win. The University of Florida has the biggest gap between football players and regular students. The players’ SAT scores average 346 points lower than the general student average.

The national average is 220 points lower for football players than the average student, and basketball players’ average are 7 points lower than football.

The news for U of L isn’t good. Of 52 schools surveyed, U of L tied Oklahoma State for lowest SAT average for incoming football freshman. U of L also ranked next-to-last in SAT average for all athletes, and had the eighth-largest SAT gap between general student population and football players.

The University of Kentucky stacks up better, ranking 12th nationally in football player SAT score, but was in the bottom dozen — 40th in student vs. football SAT gap. Football players’ SAT scores, on average, are 162 points lower than the overall student average.
