Advanced stats from the Big Ten Championship, a 34-24 Michigan State win over Ohio State.

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.)

1-for-10! Ohio State was 1-for-10 on third downs! And 0-for-2 on fourth downs! Didn't matter if they were short or long ... Ohio State wasn't converting them.
