        B. Middle Tennessee State's current stats

Guess your stats quiz

One team in America leads the nation with 5413 total yards.

Is it:

A. Toledo   

B. Boise St

C. Texas Tech

All three are in the top 10 but Texas Tech is the winner

 

Of these three teams which has given up the most points

        A. Tulane   

        B. Louisiana Lafayette   

        C. North Carolina

Actually, it is a trick question. All three have given up 354 points. Only Buffalo (371) is more generous to its opponents.

 

Who is the worst punt return team in the nation?

 If you guessed East Carolina, you are correct. The Pirates average 2.5 yards per return.

Might as well fair catch it, if you ask me.
