Here are the benchmarks for the game Saturday. No great surprises here. A couple observations:
When you take the sacks out, EMU had pretty decent success running the ball. Thankfully, again, BG was able to put them in a hole and force them to pass.
At the same time, their meager passing numbers become dreadful when you charge sacks against their passing yards.
BG's defense was absolutely great on 3rd down.
BG's offense took care of the ball and obviously had an excellent day running the ball and on third down, and that was enough for this game.
We only gave up one sack, but we also only tried 21 passes. From watching, it didn't seem like the protection was awful or great.
