1. Defense has worn down in second half. 3 straight years being outscored in the second half. 68-26 combined score. Maybe they made better adjustments, more likely our offense couldn’t sustain drives and the D grew tired. This team seems to thrive on second half adjustments this year so time to break that streak.
2. Turnovers. Stating the obvious of course, but we have lost the turnover battle 3 years in a row, 5 turnovers to 1. With a potentially wet field, ball security is crucial and we saw this pop up at MSU. Can’t give OSU any free points. Had we taken care of the ball 2 years ago, the officials incompetence wouldn’t have mattered.
