Study Hall: Penn State 31, Wisconsin 24

Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

Advanced stats from Penn State's 31-24 upset of Wisconsin in Madison on Saturday.

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.)

Pre-game win probability: Wisconsin 99%. When PSU scored early, I said to a friend (and minor PSU fan), "Well, there's PSU's touchdown." And then they scored 24 more points. Kudos, Fightin' O'Briens.
