All of the above rankings are taken directly from the NCAA; I removed strength of schedule this week, due to data not being updated as of the writing of this piece.
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.
Quite honestly, that’s a lot more chipmunks than I expected to see up there.
Michigan’s defense is quite legit, as expected; the Lions have faced two of the top rush defenses in the country so far this year, and face a third this week. But the strength of Penn State may lie elsewhere in this game, with the Penn State defense taking the lead - and capitalizing on red zone opportunities being the key for PSU in this game.
What say you all?
