Note: The Redzone TD% and Redzone TD% Defense are calculated by me and not ranked by the NCAA. Determining who has the advantage in these categories is strictly my arbitrary judgment.

There's not much to analyze this week, mostly due to Navy's one-game resume--a 50-10 demolition at the hands of Notre Dame. Had the Midshipmen played both weeks, it would be a better stats post. Penn State does have some disturbing trends developing, looking at the 3rd down defense and red zone offense to start. As the season goes on, the stats will have much more to say, which is why I didn't even do these stats posts for the first two games.
