Keys To The Game: Troy
Drew's Last 2 Keys to the Game Key 1: Stop Corey Robinson Troy's QB, Corey Robinson is the 14th most efficient passer in the nation. He's thrown 19 TD's to his 9 picks this season and has had at least one 50+ yard completion in 9 of his 11 games. Robinson isn't a runner by any means, with more sack yards than rushing yards on the year. Robinson hasn't passed for under 200 yards but one time this season. The Texas State front 7 NEEDS sacks this game. If Orakpo, McMiller, and Mayo can pressure Robinson, their game will be much easier, seeing as their rushing game is much less of a threat. Goal: Under 200 yards passing, 2 picks, and 2 sacks Key 2: Find offense without Jones Tyler Jones showed a very unsettling fact about the quarterbacks at Texas State: the two healthy senior QB's are not as good of options as the true freshman with a broken throwing hand. So, how does this offense get production in its last game of the season? Give the ball to Robert Lowe and Nutall, both averaging 5.7 yards per carry, and let the offense start from there. Troy has the 64th best rushing defense in the nation, giving up about 163 yards on the ground each game. Lowe only needs 133 yards this game to reach 1000 yards for the season by the way. If Jones or whoever is in at QB is shut down in the passing game, which is probable, the weight will be on Lowe/Nutall to lead Texas State to their last win of the season. Goal: Lowe breaking 1000 yard season, and team rush for 200 yards.
