Just like every week, I'm only considering stats from conference games.  The numbers are percentile rankings (such that 100 is the best rating you can get and 0 the worst).  No adjustment has been made to reflect strength of schedule differences.

1 great DC   vs. 1 below average DC



1 team that knows exactly who they are 




1 team that has no identity 


#1 in time of possession 




#14 in time of possession 




Yeah.  Yeah.  :(  Where are the Huskers these days?  Just where are they?


Meanwhile, two wins ago (several weeks ago) the head coach said, "We appear to have turned a bit of a corner today."

Wait... that last one: touchdowns per game?

Do you understand percentiles? ...asking for a friend.

They're all percentiles.  Wisconsin has 7 passing TD's in conference play while Nebraska has 4.


I average percentile scores in my other weekly post devoted to all conference teams and the P5 conferences themselves in FBS.


p.s. - The fumbling is what surprised me last year when I bet Wisconsin against Northwestern and they took Taylor out at half because he had at least three or so...  Hornibrook was diagnosed (or suffered) with a concussion after I placed that one, too.  I'd like to see another ugly game from them this weekend but don't suppose we get that lucky.
