FOUR THINGS TO WATCH
Begin quick: UW’s offense foundered right on time in the opener against Utah State, creating a joined 7 yards on 11 plays on its initial three belonging. Florida Atlantic battled protectively last season and did as such again in the opener against Navy. The Owls permitted 52, 25, 31, 42 and 77 focuses in their last five recreations last season and permitted 416 surging yards and 42 focuses a week ago against Navy. The Owls likely should bet to stop UW’s hurrying assault, which could prompt enormous hits down the field.
Would you be able to hear me now? UW players, and in addition guarded facilitator Jim Leonhard, recognized for the current week that correspondence issues influenced the unit ahead of schedule in the opener. The reasons: Utah State’s up-rhythm offense, four new starters and group clamor. Florida Atlantic will endeavor to push the pace too yet with a diversion in the books the players ought to be better prepared to convey the calls over the field and get set before the snap.
Yellow alarm: UW last season completed second broadly in least punishments per diversion at 3.4. UW’s high last season for punishments in an amusement was eight, in Game 11 at Purdue. The high for punishment yards was 67, set in Game 4 at Michigan State and tied at Purdue. The Badgers were punished six times for 38 yards in the primary portion of the opener and completed with nine punishments for 73 yards. Punishments for hindering in the back in the opening quarter constrained UW to begin drives from its 4 and 9, individually. The Badgers punted the two times.
Ground and pound: UW’s best three half backs – Bradrick Shaw, Jonathan Taylor and Chris James – joined to surge 32 times for 186 yards, a normal of 5.8 yards for every convey. Those numbers seem strong however all gatherings included recognized there were missed assignments by blockers, missed gaps by the backs and missed open doors by and large. With Shaw (leg) faulty, Taylor, James and Rachid Ibrahim could consolidate to get the main part of the conveys.
