Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

I mean, maybe Oklahoma State was just due. The Cowboys have been one of the most consistently solid teams in the country since, what, 2008? It had been quite a while since they laid an outright egg. But this was about two years' worth of eggs in one. Drops, special teams errors, more drops ... this was just an awful college football game. In the end, WVU earned the win by screwing up less (and hey, that defense might actually be pretty damn good). And power to them for that. But damn, OSU.
