In Bill Connelly's weekly look at numbers in 'The Numerical' his Week 3 version has a nice state about Fresno State's beat down over Colorado. The number associated with Fresno State is 5:
Plays it took for Fresno State to gain 215 yards and score four touchdowns in the first quarter of a ridiculous, 69-14 massacre of Colorado. Robbie Rouse caught a nine-yard touchdown pass from Derek Carr to go up 14-0, then following a good punt return by Isaiah Burse, Rouse caught a 12-yard touchdown pass on their next play. 21-0. Colorado pinned FSU deep with a punt, but on the first play of the next drive, Carr found Burse for a 97-yard touchdown. 28-0. And after another good punt, Rouse ran for three yards, then ripped off a 94-yard touchdown.
There could be many other stats in that game, but this one is very impressive.
