All of the above rankings are taken directly from the NCAA.
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.
Unfortunately, this looks pretty similar to the last time the Lions visited the Spartans - but fortunately, as of the writing of this post, there’s no rain in the forecast for this game.
Last week we talked about special teams trending in the right direction - and that’s continuing this week. Something else that surprised me when running these numbers is fourth down defense; but, by virtue of their defense locking down early, the Lions have faced the third most number of fourth down conversion attempts in the nation so far. Wow.
What say you all?
