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.
Quick thoughts: Most of our offensive stats took quite a hit after last week's performance against Rutgers--but no stats took as much of a dive as our punting stats did (a 7 yard pooch punt by the quarterback will do that for your team). The good news? In comes the Minutemen, arguably one of the worst teams in the FBS.
So far this season, one of the most frustrating aspects of the Penn State offense is the lack of production--TDs specifically--when they reach the redzone. Looking at this, though, the UMass defense has allowed their opponents to score 100% of the time when they get inside the 20--let's just hope that Sam Ficken doesn't need to have a big day on short field goals.
What do you guys think?
