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.
And I thought the stats looked bad in Penn State’s matchup with Illinois...
Last year, the stats favored the Nittany Lions in this matchup; absent a monsoon that delayed the game mid-second quarter, they might have more accurately reflected the game. Even 2016 saw MSU, on paper, more evenly matched with Penn State. This year, though, the numbers are even more lopsided towards the team in the blue and white; and with some Spartan starters out for injury, this could even get worse.
Trace McSorley leading a squad after a BYE week, at home? I wouldn’t bet against topping these numbers.
What say you all?
