Blue-White Halftime Notes: Offense

Rich Barnes-US PRESSWIRE

Several Offensive Observations and Statistics

  • Zach Zwinak hurt his left wrist, is on the sidelines. Bill Belton is already missing today's game with a toe injury.
  • Matt Zanellato was the starting wide receiver across from Allen Robinson, although Eugene Lewis has seen some time on the field.
  • O'Brien has been aggressive with the play calling: the first play of the game was a play action where Steven Bench looked downfield to Robinson (incomplete), while fourth play of the game was an end-around to Robinson that went for 29 yards.
  • Akeel Lynch is playing out of his mind, as is Deron Thompson. The stats are below, but the stats don't show how patient they've been waiting for blocks or their shiftiness.
  • With Kyle Carter and Adam Breneman are both out, Jesse James is the only tight end to have caught a pass today.
  • Sam Ficken is 0 for 1 on field goals.
  • Over 80 recruits, including Christian Hackenberg, are in attendance today.
