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: If I thought there were a lot of pushes last week...luckily it seems as though Penn State is on the better end of most of them.
And, once again, if only our offense could muster the close to the average yardage the opposing defense is giving up, we'd win this game walking away. Unfortunately, that's been the case for weeks on end now and it hasn't happened once yet.
The Penn State defense has turned on its head week to week--the passing D's numbers have inflated over last week and run D have gone down, but of course that's what happens when you play a team that runs the triple option and whose quarterback statistically attempts only one pass on the day, and completes it (though he dropped back more than that, and was sacked--luckily keeping PSU from dropping past #3 nationally on team sacks).
On paper, this looks to be a close, good, game. And the special teams, despite our mishaps the last few weeks, seem to be in our favor. So it should be ugly.
What do you guys think?
