Study Hall: Boise State 42, Colorado State 30

Troy Babbitt-USA TODAY Sports

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.)

Yeah, I doubt anybody is ruing missed opportunities more than Colorado State this week.

Trips inside the 40: CSU 10, Boise State 7
Points per trip: BSU 6.0, CSU 3.0

Boise State scored touchdowns on six trips and punted from the 38 on the other. CSU, meanwhile, scored four touchdowns, kicked a field goal, turned the ball over on downs twice, missed a field goal, punted once, and lost a fumble. The Rams played some incredible keepaway -- 109 plays, 40 minutes of possession -- but couldn't actually punch the ball in.

(Meanwhile, Boise State has gone from "national power" to "solid mid-major" in a year and a half. Just wanted to point that out.)
