Ohio St. Defense vs. BCS Teams outside of the Big 10, dating back to 2006.
Texas 2006 326 YDS UT started redshirt frosh Colt McCoy
FLA. 2006 370 YDS
WASH. 2007 346 YDS Washington was 4-8
LSU 2007 353 YDS
USC 2008 348 YDS
Texas 2008 468 YDS
USC 2009 313 YDS USC started a true freshman QB
AVG. 360.5 YDS A GAME
State won 2 of those games Texas in ’06 and the 4-8 Washington team from ’07. OSU is 2-5 vs. their
last 7 BCS conference opponents from outside the Big 10. They are giving up an
average of 360.5 yds and over 25 pts a game.
EDIT: I also found it interesting that, for a team with such a great rush defense, OSU did not have a single player in the top 70 in sacks, tackles or tackles for loss.
What do you guys think? Is this due to bad offenses? OSU keeping the defense off the field?
