    Better Offensive Stats NU or ISU

    Good afternoon,
    2 weeks til football starts and I can't wait.
    I'm a big Nebraska fan and I truely believe Nebraska will end the season ahead of ISU in these two major offensive statistics: Yards/game and Points/game.
    I realize you will all think I'm just a homer. Just a fun discussion point and we'll see who's correct at the end of the season.
    Good luck this year.

    I think with NU's strong defense and our inexperienced defense, that might play into us actually putting up more offensive yards and points, mostly because we will be forced to. We may be involved in a few more high scoring games. If Cotton lets the offense spread out, we have the potential to really be explosive.

    Per ESPN.com:
    Nebraska: YPG - 320.5 PPG - 24.6
    Iowa State: YPG - 356 PPG - 28.25

    ISU has the same offense from last year, and replaces fewer than Nebraska will on the offensive side of the ball. Chances are those stats should remain unchanged from last year. ;)

    Ummm... yeah. Without looking at nebraska's schedule, I'm guessing it is weaker that ISU's. So comparing those stats at the end of the season, is more or less pointless. However, if we compare the stats with similar opponents, I would have to say ISU will come out on top.

    Yeah, I remember when Nebraska routinely had almost 500 ypg. Now they are noted more as a defensive team. Things change.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Another cornerback is injured at BigRedville: Andre Jones. He has a nasty hamstring injury. Another body, Titus Brothers, has temporarily been promoted. Titus is fairly new to this position, but he can hit hard. Like Adam Sandler in Waterboy. Next thing you know, they will have to put green practice jerseys on the cornerbacks.

    If memory serves, no OU, no Tech, just Texas, Texas A&M, and good old Baylor. Which is why most experts are picking them to win El Norte.

    Well, after two games:

    Zac is up to #7 (Brett is #23) in the nation in Pass Eff. and #2 (tie) for Points responsible for

    NU is: ISU is:
    #8 in Rushing offense #52
    #16 in passing offense #57
    #3 in total offense #57
    #2 in scoring offense #44 due to overtime
    #65 in rush defense #21
    #11 in pass defense #108
    #22 in total defense #78
    #13 in scoring defense. #84 due to overtime

    We'll learn a lot more against USC this weekend. I believe we (Nebraska) will need to score 30+ to win. Good luck against Iowa this weekend. Need some wins from the North division in order to get some respect.

    is hea really updating us on the stats after they played the sisters of the poor and an 8 man football team the last 2 weeks?

    Whatever makes you sleep better, buddy? Look forward to framing your stats at the end of the year because they'll be plenty of room in the trophy case for them.
