    StatsMilk of the ISU/Tulsa Matchup

    NCAA FBS - @StatMilk

    I always like what these show. Some highlights:

    We are 97th in points/game, Tulsa's defense is 111th.

    We are 76th in points allowed/game. Tulsa's offense is 102nd.

    Both teams are ahead on turnovers (-1 for us, -2 for Tulsa).

    Both teams average about 3.5 yards/rush but we average about a 1.5 yards more than they do per pass.

    Basically we have the edge but they are a somewhat similar team statswise. Their numbers are brought down by playing Oklahoma but they also are brought up by playing Colorado State. So I think it is pretty much a wash there. Both teams are very bad against the run. But Blake Bell dropped a couple hundred yards of passing on Tulsa so it is safe to say their DBs probably aren't worldbeaters.

    On offense I bet our gameplan won't take advantage of their weakness against the pass and we'll try to run it up the gut to start the game. But we might actually get some success there. I'd rather see us air it out early and often though.

    On defense I bet we start very vanilla. Trey Watts is their best player based on the stats so hopefully we can shut him down (but we won't).

    One kind of weird thing I also noticed was that in three games they have not scored a single point in the second quarter.

    That's reassuring, I think
