Despite Disappointing Season Alabama Still Had One Of Nation's Best Defenses

Yesterday, I posted the most efficient offenses of all the bowl teams.  Today, it is the defenses turn.  Again we use yards per point (YPP) as a measure but the opposite holds true for defense: the higher your yards to point average the better your defense is.  A high YPP on defense indicates you are holding teams to field goals or generating turnovers before points are scored.  Here are the most efficient defenses in the bowl games:
