observations on the defense in the last two games.


I started noticing during the Missouri game that the coverage sets for the secondary had the conerbacks and safeties move closer to the line of scrimmage.

During the OSU game the majority of the coverage sets had the secondary  close to the line of scrimmage.

There were some posts mentioning about the defense giving up to much yardage due to the pre-snap depth of the secondary. I was wondering if the tighter coverage of the last 2 games had any effect.

 

Comparing the first 4 games to the last 4 games.

     interceptions,   yards per pass,   pass yards per game,

1-4          6                          4.7                          212

5-8        10                           4.9                          163.5

last 2 games

7-8          6                            4.6                           121

The Horns defense did better in the last 2 games stopping the pass against decent conference opponents than it did against the non conference cream puffs (excluding Tech).
