UM Leads the BIG in red zone TD% for conference play

Submitted by KodiakGT on November 13th, 2017 at 11:49 AM

Over on /r/cfb there was a thread showing that during conference play UM leads the BIG in red zone TD% with 17/23 TDs (73.91%).  I thought this was particularly hilarious given the discussions on the site earlier in the year.

But he’s averaging 15 passing attempts per game when starting vs 27 attempts per game for O’Korn (MSU, IU, PSU).

I agree it’s great he has 0 turnovers but I’m reserving judgment until we face some real defenses over the next two weeks. Would also like to see how he performs when we’re forced to throw the ball 30-40 times in a game.

Either way, the future is bright!

I'd have no problem defining the redzone at the ten yard line.  But since the current redzone definition includes that, it's still a reasonably useful metric.
