Taking a deeper look into the stats from this week's game

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Each week I will be doing my best to take a deeper look into the stats of each game. You can see all of this year's advanced box scores in the "Advanced Stats and Analysis" story stream. Curios as to what some of the definitions are? Check out Football Study Hall's Advanced Stats Glossary.

Observations

  • Man we needed that. What a huge win to re-orient the ship, this team needed some positive energy.
  • Our average starting field position was at our own 40 yard line, that is huge. Compare that to Syracuse's average starting spot of the 22 which results in 216 "hidden yards" accumulated throughout the game for GT. That is an enormous advantage that is tough to overcome, especially with how well we were playing.
  • We did a great job running the ball, and passing the ball for that matter, I mean, helluva job by everyone this game. Advanced Box Scores are great when literally every facet I look at is better than average.
  • And its something I don't cover in this (I need to though) but the fact that we had ZERO penalties is just awesome. The team clearly had it's head in the right place.
What else is there to say?
