It looks like stats are up here (although these may be incomplete?).

EDIT: I think I see where they're incomplete now. It looks like 2 games are missing in the bottom bracket.

I think the reason is because the bottom bracket got really messy after Oklahoma dropped out after the prelims. What ended up happening is one of the bye teams would end up substituting in. I'm not sure why only two of Oklahoma's forfeits have been added, though (there should be four). In case you were wondering, Rice A's PPB for that last missing game was 100/6, or 16.67.
