Passing: 80 attempts and 42 completions in 12 games. That roughly equates to 6 attempts/game and 1.75 completions per half. The Wofford Quarterback doesn’t even have a QB rating. Interestingly, you need a min of 100 attempts to establish a QB rating. These are Christian Ponder vs. Packers-like passing numbers. The main difference between the Vikings and the Terriers: The Terriers have a pretty descent defense. They rank 11th in total defense.
Given they have won all season long despite such a one-dimensional offense, shows what they will do today against NDSU. Given that level of passing ineptitude, some may argue that Wofford couldn’t pass a whole heck of a lot even if it wanted to. Wofford head coach Mike Ayers was quotes in the Sumter (S.C) Item as saying, “They [NDSU] are very well-coached and have some great players. The first thing we have to do is get a first down. Then we take it from there. We just need to stay on schedule. If we can just get 3 1/2 yards every time, we move the sticks.”
3.5 yards per carry is what they are hoping for??? Wow – That’s actually not that great of an average for most RB’s. I expect they are going to feed us a steady diet of
Zenner Bell Breitenstein. Sorry, I had flash backs to the last guy who was going to run all over us. By the way, is it just me or have I seen at least three Running Backs who were supposedly the leading FCS rusher? Zenner, the Stonybrook Running Back and now Breitenstein. I’m confused with who the leader is, but I digress.
I argue if we can keep Breisenstein to 3.5 yards / carry, Wofford is done. They have a tendency to cough up the ball. Jensen’s going to throw and force them to change their game plan.
NDSU Wins. 24-14
