We will wrap up the Georgia State A to Z today.

Today is …

Z is for red zone

Opponents were inside Georgia State’s 20-yard line 68 times last season.

Georgia State was inside its opponent’s 20-yard line 34 times last season.

So, opponents were inside the 20-yard line twice as often as Georgia State.

That’s an amazing stat and naturally explains why the Panthers were outscored by almost 2:1, 520-272.

Of those 68 possessions, opponents scored 48 touchdowns, which is more than the Panthers scored (36) from anywhere on the field all season.

Looking at the scoring overall, things were most bad in the first and third quarters, when coaches have the most time to prepare.

The Panthers were outscored 116-44 in the first quarter and 141-49 in the third quarter.
