Taking an in-depth look at the stats from last week's game

Kevin Liles-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

  • This was just an all around "win". Other than when Pitt tried to run the ball there was no specific area we dominated, we just outplayed Pitt, which is what we want.
  • Our passing offense needs work. Even with the bomb in the 4th quarter (that was an under-thrown ball in to double coverage) our passing numbers did not look well.
  • Our pass rush was awesome. I mean, it was fun to watch the boys tee off on Passing Downs.
