Study Hall: Rutgers 55, SMU 52

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Saturday saw lots of crazy comebacks and upset attempts that didn't actually change my perceptions of teams involved. I didn't think more highly of Tennessee after almost beating Georgia, I didn't think any lower of South Carolina after almost allowing Kentucky to come back, and my opinions of these two teams didn't change despite the fact that I like Rutgers a decent amount and don't like SMU at all. Hmm, maybe that's on me, not them.

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.)
