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.
To give you all an idea of how I pull together these statistics: first, I go through all of Penn State’s stats, updating as I go down the list, then our opponent’s stats, then I compare. And this week, I have to tell you, I started getting (even more) dejected while going through the Nittany Lions’ statistics, which were pretty ok before last week’s shitshow but plummeted this week.
And then I started going over Nebraska’s stats, and I started laughing. Woof, this is going to be a race to the bottom sort of game, isn’t it?
And the one area that’s subjective, and where it looks like PSU might have the edge - in the redzone (wait, stop laughing!!) - I decided to go with pushes instead of giving PSU the edge. Why, might you ask? Well, they’ve got to show me that they can actually put the ball throught he uprights, rather than taking two sacks and missing a field goal. It’s just that kind of year.
