Benchmarks, OU Style

So, here are the benchmarks for the OU game.  As noted earlier, BG actually outplayed OU on paper as well as on the scoreboard.  For all the yards, BG made OU run a ton of plays to get that many yards.  Even out the big disparity on 3rd down and the numbers would be more even.  OU's red zone number even understates the difference since a couple of BG's "stops" came on drives that did not get into the red zone.

There's no way OU planned to run 37% of its plays as passing plays.  That's the beauty of having a lead.

Interesting...with 5 sacks in that many attempts, it is just slightly above the league average on a percentage basis.
