Study Hall: Oklahoma State 52, Texas Tech 34

Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Spo

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.)

Remember how symmetrical the Auburn-Arkansas game was, how perfectly the projected and actual scoring margins were? Yeah, this game was the opposite.

As far as I can tell, here's the difference-maker:

Trips inside the 40: OSU 9, Tech 9 (including pick six)
Points per trip: OSU 5.8, Tech 3.8

In nine trips, OSU scored seven touchdowns, kicked a field goal, and threw a pick. Meanwhile, Tech scored four touchdowns (three sans the pick six), kicked two field goals, threw a pick, and turned the ball over on downs twice. There is still value in actually punching the ball into the end zone.
