Numbers sometimes tell stories that emotion and frustration can’t. Other times they confirm exactly what we saw with our own eyes. Here are some of the numbers from yesterday’s game:
176: The numbers of yards passing, and the number of yards rushing. Addazio wanted to have a more balanced attack. He got just that.
15: First downs in the game by BC.
7: Penalties by the Eagles.
0: Kickoff return average for BC. (Every kickoff was a touchback)
6.0: Rushing average for Jonathan Hilliman, who returned to the Eagles with 103 yards in his first game back
2.8: Yards per carry Georgia Tech averaged against last year’s premier rushing defense
2.8: Taking out the Hilliman run, what BC averaged per run on all their other rushes.
64.7%: Patrick Towles Completion Percentage during his first game with the Eagles
92: Receiving yards by Charlie Callinan, the games leading receiver
83: Where our offense ranks nationally after week one (minus the Texas/ND game)
8: Tackles for Connor Strachan, leading the game. Along with 4 tackles for loss.
30:18 time of possession for Georgia Tech/29:42 time of possession for BC
