Conference Recap by The Numbers: Week 4
10: 4th quarter points allowed at home by UCONN to Michigan to blow their upset bid. 346: Passing yards by Rutgers QB Gary Nova that led them to a victory of Arkansas. 1: Teddy Bridgewater is the first QB to have three games with four TD passes. He helped guide them to a 72-0 win over FIU.
12: The shortened length of the 4th quarter between Miami and Savannah St. Miami showed mercy after being up 77-7. 113: Combined points in the Pittsburgh vs. Duke game. Pitt QB Tom Savage threw for 424 yards and 6 TDs in the victory. 68: Yard interception return for a TD by FSU’s Telvin Smith. He also had 12 tackles and 1 sack in the 54-6 victory over Bethune-Cookman. 3: Sacks by Clemson DE Vic Beasley that helped hold NC State to just 14 points in another Clemson victory.
70: Points hung on LA Monroe by Baylor. At one point I thought they’d go for 100 but they settled on winning 70-7. 2: The amount of years it has been since Kansas had a win over a FBS team. They won on Saturday 13-10 against Louisiana Tech. Time for an extension for Charlie Weis? I kid Jayhawks fans. 20: Rushing yards allowed by Texas Tech. Yes they were playing Texas State but their defense has been much improved and is the secret sauce behind their 4-0 start.
76-0: The score of the Ohio State game against FAMU. The Rattlers were outmatched from the start when Kenny Guiton threw 6 TD passes in the first half. 603-80: That’s the yard difference in that same game. How about tOSU never schedule FAMU again? 202: Rushing yards allowed by Nebraska to Zach Zenner. The defense looked better this week but still has a long way to go even after a 59-20 victory of SDSU. 3: Rushing TDs for Penn State’s Zach Swinak in a 34-0 win over Kent State. This is the 2nd straight week he ran for 3 TDs.
98-0: The combined victory for Washington and Washington State this Saturday. State brought home a 42 point victory of Idaho and the Huskies won by 56. 10: The number of players on the field for the first play of the UCLA game. The Bruins honored their fallen teammate Nick Pasquale by running the first play one man short. It was a very nice gesture. 4: Times in a row that Utah has beaten BYU in the “holy war” rivalry game. 29: First half points by Stanford that propelled them to victory even with a late comeback bid by ASU.
24: Unanswered points by UGA to run away from North Texas 45-21. 2: Aaron Murray became just the second QB in SEC history to throw for 100 career TDs. Somehow he continues to be underrated though. 623: Total yards racked up by Missouri in the win over Indiana. Most people only remember that Texas A&M joined the SEC last year but the Tigers did too and are off to a nice start this year and are currently the only undefeated SEC East team. 183: Yards rushing by LSU RB Jeremy Hill. He added 3 TDs and had the most rushing yards by an LSU back since 2004.
