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.
This is what it should look like when a top ten team plays a team near the bottom of the FBS. And the stats are even a little more deceiving - part of why Rutgers' pass defense is ranked so high, for example, is because teams have run all over them, so they don't have to pass much (and thus the pass yards aren't racked up).
And part of why Penn State's third down conversion rate is so horrible is that they get first downs on first or second down, rather than third.
The Nittany Lions, on paper, should dominate on all facets of the game - offense, defense, and special teams. But, as we all know from last week's chaos, anything can happen, no matter what it says on paper.
