Note: All of the above rankings are taken directly from the NCAA except for strength of schedule, which is not ranked by the NCAA and instead taken from S&P (Football Outsiders).
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.
Honestly? I thought there'd be more red on there.
And considering the fact that these stats take in the entire season's worth of data into their rankings - and since the end of September, PSU has played like a different (much better) team - I'd say that bodes very well for the Nittany Lions.
Not to take Wisconsin lightly; they have a very, very good defense. And they like to pound the rock - so take that away from them, and this could be very winnable. And special teams should be a standout for the Lions.
