For Zeek Geek
Texas v. Iowa defense
Scoring Defense, Texas 15th / Iowa 16th
Rush Defense, Texas 1st (keep in mind 2nd place is averaging over 20 yards more per game) / Iowa 53rd
Pass Defense, Texas 50th / Iowa 16th
Total Defense, Texas 6th / Iowa 22nd
Takeaways, Fumbles recovered + Interceptions = takeaways. Texas (9+10 )= 19 / Iowa (7+15)= 22
I don’t mean to put this up to make either team look bad, just to follow up on yet another convo. ZeekGeek and I had. As I said Texas’s Run Defense is unrivaled in the nation.
Also as you said Iowa has tons of takeaways….but alas Iowa is 2nd in the nation behind Ohio of all people sheesh. Texas is tied for 5th
Also a sidenote that has nothing to do with this. People were saying that the Texas game is going to end their run at being highest scoring offense in the country, well they are still current number 1 (just barely ahead of Texas Tech). Avg, 42 points a game.
