#TheTop25 This is my series on the 25 Players, Coaches, Schemes, and Incidents That Made Me Love College Football. I will link the other pages in the Top 25 as they are posted. 21-25: Ray Lewis, Texas-Nebraska, Statue of Liberty, Andy Dalton and Power Read.
Army and North Texas are aligned for a rematch in the Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl on 12/27 at 9am (noon eastern). North Texas won round 1 35-18. On the S&P+ Army is ranked 81 while North Texas is ranked 111. Regarding turnover margin (my favorite stat after S&P+) North Texas is ranked 52nd, Army was ranked 92nd in that stat. I can see Army beating North Texas, even after losing in the regular season, because Bradshaw the Army QB has gotten into a better groove (see: Army/Navy) and won’t throw 4 interceptions this time around, and Army hopefully won’t lose 3 fumbles.
In Gap, Scrape, Option Exchange part 2, we study the triple option of yesteryear (I just like saying yesteryear) and look at the Oklahoma Wishbone from the 80’s and the Nebraska I from the 90’s. Name a better era of college football, I double dog dare you. This is part 2 of a 3 part series.
