Keeping track this year of how well the Buffs are able to gain yards relative to field position. So far, it has not been such a great start for the Buffs offense through two weeks. Luckily, the defense has been able to make up for it so far. I'll keep this updated each week.
Updated Following ASU: Not a whole lot to say besides the defense wore down against the Sun Devils run game late. The offense bogged down in the second half, gaining more than 50% of the required yards just twice , with 5 failing to gain at least 15%.
Updated Following Cal: The offense looked much better this week with just 4 drives failing to get 50% of potential yardage, while the defense forced 5 failed drives and added an interception score.
Updated Following Wazzu: The weather obviously dampened both offenses a bit, but the Buffs didn't have a drive gain 50% of the needed yards but once in the game. You're never going to win a game doing that,
Updated Following Oregon State: The Buffs came away luck here. The defense bent all afternoon bust stiffened most of the first half to keep the game in reach, which lead to the second half offensive surge giving the Buffs the victory.
Updated for the Arizona Game: In the shootout the team that gets one more stop wins. Arizona had just 1 drive gain less than 70% of the potential yardage, while the Buffs had 4. This one was brutal on defense, but at least the offense moved the ball well all game.
Updated for the UCLA Game. Close Games mean mistakes cost us here. We moved the ball well, but did give up a lot of field position as well
