Yeah, this is sort of dangerous for the No. 1 spot.
Offenses have been way ahead of the defenses so far, there are a whole slew of changes to both of these teams and their respective offenses, and it’s the start of the season. We really have no clue what these teams can do quite yet. However …
How can you not still be scarred by these two teams and what they weren’t able to do last year?
The Northwestern defense will still be good, if not better. Last season, Wildcat games failed to hit 54 points in ten of the 12 games, and one time was because Ohio State took care of most of the work by itself, and in the other, Minnesota went off a bit.
Northwestern’s offense failed to score more than 15 points seven times, and even when it did have some fun in the Big Ten, it was flirting – but not closing – with 30 points.
Maryland?! You mean the team that failed to score more than 16 points in any of the last five games?
Again, new year, new teams, but until these two offense prove otherwise, assume this is going to be played under 25 on each side.
