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.
Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we?
Here’s what this chart looked like in 2018; final score was 20-7, PSU.
And here comes 2019, blowing it all out of the water. In the many years in which I’ve done these posts, I don’t recall ever seeing so many rankings in the bottom 10 of all FBS squads. It’s obvious why Chris Ash was fired by the Rutgers’ athletic department - but the team looks like it’s just quit. And coming off three seasons under Ash that saw RU only win seven games (combined!), that’s saying a lot.
And unlike some years, with some teams with such stats and rankings, there’s a very difficult schedule to contend with. But not this Rutgers team! At least they have punt return defense?
