Key Stat

The Herd limited the Roadrunners to 254 total yards, 177 yards below their average. 

We were able to take away their perimeter runs. The turnovers were huge for us and our defense continues to get better.

A lot of things went wrong, we didn’t play our best, for one, and the third down was a disaster for us.
