Huskers' Offense Still Searching for that Finishing Move

November 18, 2019

Nebraska averaged 23.5 yards per point Saturday. That is, objectively, as bad as it can get for an offense. The metric itself underscores a finishing move. The worst team in the country right now at “finishing” is Akron. The Zips average 24.9 yards per point. Bowling Green is next, at 22.7. 

One game, obviously, does not a season make, and trying to extrapolate the Huskers’ average against a good Wisconsin defense (one that ranks fourth nationally in red zone drives allowed and red zone scores allowed, and ninth in yards per point allowed) over an entire season to prove some kind of point would be missing the actually-important point.
