Start with this. Rutgers scored 14 points in four games, and then exploded for 44 on the Liberty defense.
Rutgers really, really, really can’t score.
Meanwhile, the Flames are rolling on offense, putting up 34 on the Scarlet Knights after hanging 59 on Maine.
Is there anything to be worried about with the 33 combined points in the New Mexico State game or the 27 against New Mexico? Yeah … these Flames burned this piece twice.
But that’s where the UMass defense comes in.
The Minutemen are allowing well over 50 points per game. Only Akron – the worst team in college football – scored fewer than 44 on this team, and it put up 29.
Last week against another defensively challenged team, UMass put up 35 on UConn with the total getting to 91. The week before that, Louisiana Tech scored 69 on its own.
