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.
No, you didn’t miss some 2020 Big Ten football games that I got the above statistics from; because of this year’s shortened season, and half of the division having started games over a month ago, we made the editorial decision to kick off this year by using the 2019 football season’s rankings.
What does that mean? Who knows! It could be incredibly prescient, with the departure of Micah Parsons and injury to Journey Brown not being a factor in the game’s outcome. Or, the curse of the trip to Bloomington to face the perennial chaos team of the Big Ten East could mean that the game is far closer than last season’s raw stats indicate.
My money’s on somewhere in the middle, with plenty of belly aching from PSU fans all day and frustration from Hoosiers that they can’t ever seem to get over their hump.
What say you all?
